 August 12, 2010, 08:10 Specify hybrid values for expressions in CFX-Post? #1 New Member   Joseph Tipton Join Date: Jun 2010 Posts: 14 Rep Power: 8 When creating expressions in CFX-Post, is it possible to force a hybrid calculation? This question stems from my desire to calculate an average Nusselt number on the top surface of the outlet of a rectangular channel. To obtain the average heat flux I am using the following expression: lengthAve(Wall Heat Flux)@TopLineOut Here's the problem... If I open a result in CFX-Post and double click on my expression, I get a very large number (1.#INF [W m^-2]). If I next go to the calculator and calculate "lengthAve(Wall Heat Flux)@TopLineOut" I first get the result "Undefined". By pressing the "Hybrid" button, a reasonable value is then displayed. Finally, if I then go back to the expressions tab and click on my custom expression, the reasonable value is displayed and any other custom expressions that use a hybrid variable suddenly display reasonable numbers also. Does anyone have an idea what is happening? This is very annoying and keeps me from using the Workbench parameter study feature. topsedar likes this.

What I would consider doing is to replace your line integral with a surface integral where the surface you are integrating over is thin, so it is just about a line anyway. Then you evaluate the area integral and that should work fine.

For example lengthAve(Wall Heat Flux)@TopLineOut then at the bottom of Function Calculator tab, Press Hybrid button. after this CFD Post automatically uses Hybrid Values For your Expression
