3D simulation: Extract 2D integrated solution values along a path
Posted Jan 4, 2011, 3:36 PM EST Results & Visualization Version 4.1 6 Replies
Now I have a problem with the evaluation, maybe someone of you can help me.
The geometry is sth. extruded from a 2D geometry. In 2D there is a rectangle (R), centered to x,y=0, which in 3D into the z dimension becomes extruded to a long (prolate) rectangular block. It is kind of a waveguide.
What I need: The power flow into z direction (P), integrated in a plane, which is the rectangle (R) over the z coordinate.
I now already tried, defining me a Results-> Datasets->CutLine 3D.
Is this the right approach? Is it possible to define there a 2D integration which I can extract as a scalar along the z (1D) extension?
I have also already included a "line" object in my geometry, central (x,y=0), as I hoped, maybe, I could at least get scalar values along this line. But in principle I want to do this aforementioned 2D integration before going along the line.
To be honest, at this point I am now a bit at a loss.
Has anyone of you already done this?
I guess, if it is then in this discussion forum as an answer, maybe it could be also a good help for others ;-)
