Visualizing and querying the velocity field is a key part of understanding flow simulations. Whether it's a close examination of the boundary layer, a precise extraction to correlate with experimental data, or a quick check on whether the flow has developed the way you expect it to, it's always useful to review the velocity field. It's not always easy, given the complicating factors that abound in flow simulations, but you can be sure Tecplot's way of doing it is efficient, robust and - important! - automatable.
