Plot XY solution options

I have a cylinder with its orgin at the center and the x and z direction going outward while the y direction points up (normal to surface). Im injecting fluid from the bottom of the cylinder to the top of the cylinder. I want to plot different things such as velocity magnitude, shear stress, volume fraction going from the inlet to the outlet of the cylinder. What options should I choose for plot direction and surface? I have a midcut going through the cylinder if that is helpful.

This is definitely the direction that I would like to work towards. Question, the line surface that you created would only reflect what is happening at the center of the cylinder correct? If I wanted to know what is happening through the entire cylinder surface from the bottom to the top, is there a good method for plotting this that would still give a single line plot? Or should I just do several straight lines going from the inlet to the outlet at different areas along the cylinder? Thank you for your help!

as i understand suppose you have following isosurfaces or cross sections at different locations. 

then you can calculate surface integrals for each cross section


you can create reports and save report file.
