hello everyone,

i am simulating the flow within a system of pipes (flow under pressure). I want to determine the pressure loss between different positions within the system. How would you suggests to to that with cfx-post? I would create different vertical planes at the requested positions and query: areaAve(total pressure)@planeXY with the function calculator. Is this the correct procedure? Thanks for your help!
Joe

you could even add monitor points in cfx pre to view the results over iteration or time in cfx solver manager
