 June 24, 2005, 04:47 Automatic post processing of Transient simulation #1 Aziz Guest   Posts: n/a Hello I have been trying to do some post processing calculation for my transient simulation. I have done this per hand very often but now i want it to be automatic so that i can use it for optimization process. My query is: I want to calculate the total energy at the inlet and outlet of the nozzle which is time dependent. I used to write density, pressure and velocity at the inlet and outlet by exporting the values from chart in CFX-Post and than in Excel i did further calculation to find the nozzle efficiency in transient flow. Any one know how can you use command editor in CFX-Post to store and calculate the sum of energy over time. Just for reference the equations are like that: Efficiency = Numerator / Denomenator Numerator = Sum((Pressure * Velocity * Area)@outlet*DeltaT)+Sum((0.5*density*Area*Velocit y^3)@outlet Denomerator = should be same as Numerator but calcualted for inlet thanks Aziz

It's pretty simple (I only spend one week to learn PERL and I can automate basically anything in Post now). There're quite some free references about PERL programming on Google. Cheers.
