dsuneail is on a distinguished road

I am new to CFD. Currently working on a Centrifugal pump model.
In the CFX-solver, I am trying to find the pump head (actually I am trying to gather the data for the Head vs flowrate curve).

I tried using 'probe' function, probing the inlet and outlet ports respectively to view the pressures? Is this the correct way?

Please advice.

Read the CFX documentation - there are a few tutorial examples relevant to this model and a best practices guide which you should read.
