Mass Flow Rate Custom Field Function
Hi everyone, I just have a pretty quick and simply question,
I am using Ansys Fluent 13.0 and I am trying to create a custom field function for mass flow rate in order to use it in addition to another custom field function. My question is where can I find the area value that I need for this? I know mass flow rate is rho*V*A but the only areas I can find are related to the cell faces and therefore gives me the incorrect mass flow rate.
I know I can find mass flow rate under the monitors, reports, and xy plots but I specifically need to write it as a custom field function for my purposes. If anyone can help me with this small problem I would greatly appreciate it.
