Results / Streamline Plots

Visualize vector quantities in your results.

Streamline plots are a postprocessing tool in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software that can be applied to the results of 2D and 3D models. You can use a Streamline plot to display a vector quantity, which is especially useful for visualizing fluid flow.

Watch this video to learn how to use Streamline plots to fit the needs of your COMSOL Multiphysics® model. For the heat sink model shown here, we add streamlines to show the air flow through the air domain and around the heat sink.
