 January 10, 2011, 16:57 Arithmetic mean of velocity (steady - state) #1 Member   don lenardo Join Date: Nov 2010 Posts: 75 Rep Power: 8 Hello, I am using CFX 12.1 (in steady state mode)to simulate flow in hydraulic pumps. Because of instable phenomena at the examine loadcases the steady - state solution does not really converge but fluctuates with an almost constant amplitude (=velocity at 1000 measurement points in a spiral case). Now I want to calculate the arithmetic mean of these velocity values at the defined points for comparing with measurement values.Therefor I create a perl code to import the coordinates of these measurement points in CFX-Post, to calculate the velocities (probe(Var)@Point) at these points and to export the velocities (.csv chart).but now i need the arithmetic mean of the velocities vs. iteration-numbers to get a "correct" solution for comparing. So how can I reach this (preferred in CFX Post 12.1)? Thank you for your advice in advance. regards markus

 January 10, 2011, 18:26 #3 Member   don lenardo Join Date: Nov 2010 Posts: 75 Rep Power: 8 So how do I calculate an arithmetic mean of velocity vs. iteration number after steady state calculation in CFX-Post 12.1 at the desired measurement POINTS (no area/line)? Any idea?i hope this is possible! Regards Markus

You cannot do this easily in CFD-Post.
