Dear All, Can you please tell me how to visualize the mass flow rate from CFX post if i am using the variable mass flow given in CFX it is giving me some negative values. Looking forward your valuable reply.

Hi,

Negative mass flow means the net flow is in the reverse direction. Isn't that pretty obvious?

Hi,

You can get mass flow rates as the simulation progresses using a monitor point, and you can also get it from a finished run in CFX-Post using the tools/function calculator.

Both of these methods are discussed in the documentation.
