Press the Results button in the Workflow to extract information from the simulation. In order to find information that can be readily used, first press Evaluate Results. Once the evaluation is complete, AIM will automatically output a vector in the Results section under Objects. The vectors show air velocity, but may be hard to see. Select the Velocity vector to edit the settings with which the vectors are defined. Change the Symbol distribution to Based on mesh and At every Nth item to 5.  Under Appearance, change Symbol sizing to 3. Press Evaluate to update the vectors. Press the Play button in the model window to see how these velocity vectors develop over time.

To find the total pressure on the walls of the nozzle, select Contour from the Results Add dropdown menu. Select all of the outside faces of the flow volume (except the inlet and outlet) as the Location and change the Variable to Pressure.

The Mach number distribution inside the flow field can be displayed by adding a plane that evenly cuts through the nozzle. In the top right corner of the model window, click the Add plane button.  By default, the plane is oriented to bisect the nozzle. Right click on the plane and select Add > Results > Contour, then change the Variable to Mach Number.  Press Evaluate to see the contour.
