How to obtain mass flow rate of one phase
 
Hi,

Who can tell me how to obtain the mass flow rate of one specific phase through one boundary in a multiphase simulation?

I know following three methods: (1)In text command: report/mass-flow (2)In menu: Solver>Monitor>mass flow rate (3)In menu: Solver>Monitor>flow rate>choose phase vilume fraction as the variable.

I tried above three methods, and the results are different. Which one should be correct?

Also, I hope to export the mass-flow-rate vs time data to a file. How can I realize this?

Thank you very much.

Method #3 is the correct choice, particularly if you have more than one phase flowing through the monitoring surface.
