Paraview failed to correctly show the distribution of velocity
Hi, I recently got a quite strange problem when visualizing the
OpenFOAM simulation results using
ParaView. I followed this tutorial to set up a parabolic inlet velocity profile and used
simpleFoam to run a simulation for flow past a wall mounted cube.
When I use
ParaView to visualize the velocity distribution on inlet, the results are wrong.
To further check the results, I use
sample utility provided by
OpenFOAM to extract velocity on the plane of symmetry (same position as shown in above figure), and the result is
I also have utilized
Fluent to check the results and it looks right.
I am curious whether that's bug of
ParaView. The information about the version of software is listed as below:
5.8.0 (Both show wrong results)

I upload the case files (include results and mesh files) here and hope it can help.
