Hi there, I’m learning Elmer for electromagnetic simulations. I’m also using the opportunity to learn and use Paraview.

The main goal is to compare FEMM 2D and Elmer 2D.

For Cartesian problems, I can integrate variables (Paraview) over surfaces and get the exact same results.

However, after different types of trials, I can’t reproduce the results for axis Symmetric solution. After reading other topics, my doubt remains. Thus I decided to ask.

Does Paraview knows that the result is axis Symmetric by default?

If I integrate variables over surface, I was expecting to get a volume, not an area. Also, I get a wrong contour plot.

Probably, I just need brainstorming to understand if this can be a paraview problem, as it doesn’t seems to be Elmer solution problem.

Really sorry about the confusion. It is clear how to convert (mathematically speaking). However, it’s unclear how to manipulate coordinates in paraview. I can only view Variables Results.

I’m still learning paraview, the workflow and filters are not completely clear.

Should I use a specific filter or I should use calculator? If so, where can I see the list of available variables?
