The input \inltt{.fld} files are the outputs of the \textit{wss} module. If they do not contain the surface normals (an optional output of the \textit{wss} modle), then the \textit{shear} module will not compute the last metric, |WSSG|.
\subsection{Stream function of a 2D incompressible flow: \textit{streamfunction} module}
The streamfunction module calculates the stream function of a 2D incompressible flow, by
solving the Poisson equation
\nabla^2 \psi = -\omega
where $\omega$ is the vorticity. Note that this module applies the same boundary conditions
specified for the y-direction velocity component \inltt{v} to the stream function,
what may not be the most appropriate choice.
To use this module, the user can run
FieldConvert -m streamfunction test.xml test.fld test-streamfunc.fld
where the file \inltt{test-streamfunc.fld} can be processed in a similar
way as described in section \ref{s:utilities:fieldconvert:sub:convert}.
