POLYFLOW - How to plot a variable vs. residence time along one trajectory?
Let us assume a flow solution; velocity field and other results are known. How can one plot the evolution of a selected variable vs. residence time along a given trajectory?
This can be very instructive, although it is not too easy.
First of all, trajectories have to be calculated in a so-called MIXING task; the field of interest have to be asked.
In a POLYSTAT session:
- select a single trajectory, for example the one that starts from a given point (see section 4.3.4 of the POLYSTAT user's guide),
- ask for the display of a required property vs. time along the selected trajectory (see section 220.127.116.11 of the POLYSTAT user's guide).
