A set of sensors is a measuring object which can be placed anywhere in the calculation domain.
Previously, to obtain a variable at a certain point of computational domain, it was necessary to create a small object with dimentions closed to the cell size and set a characteristic on this object. It became much more convenient with the help of sensors. You can simply select a point or even several points in space, create there the sensor set and receive data in one glo-file.
What is a sensor in FlowVision?
A sensor is a point of computational domain at which the values of a variable may be assembled. The variable is defined either in the center of cell where the sensor is placed, or on the associated facet surface.
