How to compute vorticity in Paraview

I’ve opened the results of a simulation (Velocity field and Pressure) in Paraview. I know that the vorticity is by definition the curl of the velocity.

How can I proceed to to compute the vorticity in Paraview? I can’t find a clear answer to this after searching. Could you please give a detailed answer for someone beginner?

P.S: I am using a structured mesh for my domain, if that matters.

I appreciate your help.

You can compute vorticity using the Gradient Of Unstructured DataSet filter (it will work with structured data as well). After you add the filter, click on the gear icon pqAdvanced to toggle on advanced properties. From there you will see a Compute Vorticity option.
