Determine what part of a source leaves an outflow point


(Mark) #1

Hi all,

I have an incompressible flow simulation from openfoam where I have 2 inlets and 2 outlets.
How can I determine what part of inlet 1 is leaving though outlet 2?
Is there a tracer/filter I can use for this?

Thanks,

Here is a way, using the StreamTracer :

  • Open your dataset, Apply
  • Select the inlet points
  • Add an ExtractSelection filter, Apply
  • Set your dataset as the active source
  • Add a StreamTracerWithCustomSource filter,
  • Set the extract selection as the seed source
  • Configure the StreamTracer accordingly to your data, Apply

Mathieu,

Thanks for the reply I’ll give it a go.
