Add Fluid Flow Query

A Fluid Flow line represents a path of fluid flow through the material. Each flow line starts from a query point, and follows the direction of Discharge Velocity.

Query points on a Fluid Flow line are defined the same way as query points on a Line Query (Add Line Query). Starting at each query point, the flow determines the Discharge Velocity direction at that location, then travels an increment of distance in that direction, to determine the next point along the flow.

1. In the CAD views, draw a polyline; in the Draw Polyline pane, Enter a sequence of coordinates, or Edit Table.

  1. 2. Specify the placement of the query points along the polyline:
  2. a. At a desired number of locations, evenly spaced along the polyline;
  3. b. At each vertex; or
  4. c. At each vertex, and at a desired number of points, evenly spaced along each segment.

2. Adaptive Step Size and Custom Step Size determine how the flow line follows the Discharge Velocity. Adaptive Step Size means that the flow line makes small movements when the Discharge Velocity has a small magnitude, and large movements for large magnitudes; disabling Adaptive Step Size means that the flow line will always make the same size movement. Enter a Custom Step Size to explicitly define how large the flow line’s movements are.
