I am doing a simple model about the pipe flow.
I want to get the flux rate through a cross section.
the baffles can help me, but i can't find how to display it?
Could u help me? Thank u.

you can go to Display-> View -> Baffle Option, then you can choose which baffle to show/hide or edit the color.

Thank you ck5258.
I want to get the curve of flux rate vs time. and it is a pity that i don't know how to do it.
You tell me to click the baffle option, and there is no respond. it is crazy.
i am fresh to the Flow3d.
Thank u very much!

Kent Sun you can go to Analyze -> Probe -> Data source -> General history -> look for flux surface plot. hope this help.

Dear ck5258:
thank u again.
I have try to find it on the general history, but i failed. there is no flux surface plot.
so i think there is something wrong with my setting.
i set the baffle definition z coordinate =10 limiters xl=0 xh=100 yl=0 yh=100
and the porosity is 1, define the baffles as a flux surface.all of these are set by the GUI.
Is there anything else I didn't set?
thank u for your patient.
