Default User Surface massFlow

Hi, has anyone experienced CFX-POST 11.0 failure while trying to calculate the massFlow or any massFlowAve across a user surface ? My own User Surface is made out of a velocity contour in the oulet plane (an opening bc) of my domain.

If you tried it and experienced no problem it could also be good to know.

Thanks,

Felix

Hello Windhair,

This is exactly what doesn't work. For example, using the function calculator to evaluate the mass flow, CFX-Post crashes. I see the progress bar (bottom right of the screen) trying to calculate the Assembly and it gets stuck at 100%. The solver then stops responding and I have to manually kill the process.

Did you experience any similar trouble ?

Felix

I have no problem during such caculation. Maybe you can try to caculate it on some other surface or for a simple geometry.

It works perfectly on many surfaces but not on conical user surfaces or contour-bounded user surfaces. I'll keep on investigating this.
