Dear friends
I did transient analysis. inlet is velocity(t) and outlet is 0 Pa. I would like to calculate the average pressure inside the domain or at a point inside the domain.
for this I have created a plane and I use a function calculator and I set the following parameters

function > area average ; Location > plane 1: Variable > Total pressure.

Please confirm is the procedure is correct?



Thank you

Regards

Govind
