  1. alpharays786 liked a post in a topic by cfdguru in surface contour: velocity magnitude?   
    The velocity magnitude at a no-slip wall is zero.  You can certianly plot it in AcuFieldView, but the results won't be that interesting.  Since AcuSolve is finite element based, the nodes on the wall satisfy this constraint identically, and hence your results are zero.  Finite volume codes tend to plot the velocity magnitude at the cell center of the first element off the wall.  However, this is NOT the velocity at the wall.
