Dear All,

I want to get a result as a graph, but I want to volumetric flow as a function of height of water ( Q=f(h) not Q=f(t) ).
Could you tell me how i can get it.

thanks,
Bassem

you can plot velocity as a function of a coordinate direction, but not Q, in FLOW-3D. If you use Tecplot, FieldView or Ensight, you can create new variables by integrating the flow rate over horizontal rows of cells and then plotting it as a function of height.

If not, then only modifying the FLOW-3D source code (e.g., BC.F) is the solution.
