Default source term
Posts: n/a
Dear everyone,

It's the first time that I use Species transportation model in fluent. I confused about some conceptions. If I seperated 1m3 fluid zone as source, my mass source term will be 0.01kg/m3-s. If I seperated 10m3 fluid zone as source, what is the mass source term? I think it should be 0.001kg/m3-s. Am I right? Because there is no help around me, I wish somebody can give me some answers about this. I guess this is a easy question for you. But now I am really very confused. Could you please give me your hands? Thanks.

Yes, the new source term will be 0.001kg/m3s if defined within a 10m3 volume.
