 May 13, 2009, 05:29 Post-process for mass flow rate #1 New Member   wei Join Date: Apr 2009 Posts: 17 Rep Power: 8 I run an engine simulation and am able to present velocity and static pressure at desire crank angle using contour plot or vector plot. For mass flow rate, how can I extract the information and post-process it? p/s some more information added Later, I try getc flux However, the output printed "*Error - all 6 fluxes are not on file". What is that means? Last edited by wei; May 13, 2009 at 10:29.

I goto Plot > Flux Sum > Pick Cells to select four cells. The output prints: For 4 faces: area = 0.40E-01 flux= -0.821894E-04 total cumulative area (absolute) = 0.7E-01 total cumulative area (scaled) = 0.7E-07 total cumulative fllux = -0.143841E-03 If the unit of dimension in my case is milimeter, 1) What units are above numbers? 2) What is the differences of 'area', 'total cumulative area (absolute) ' and 'total cumulative area (scaled)' ? 3) What is the differences of 'flux', 'total cumulative flux' ?
