Results / Arrow Plots

Visualize field distributions in your results. Duration: 5:05

Arrow plots are a powerful postprocessing tool used to visualize field distributions in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. This is useful for fluid flow, electricity and magnetism, chemical, and heat transfer applications.

Arrow plots are available in three dimensions. You can display the vector quantity of interest to you in 3D domains, on surfaces, or on lines through Arrow Volume, Arrow Surface, and Arrow Line plots; respectively.

Watch this video to find out how to create an Arrow plot and learn about the several options available for this plot type. In addition, you will see how to implement a color expression, which makes a color range proportional to an expression that is representative of a physics quantity.
