need help for using user defined heat exchanger
 
I defined a heat exchanger and used it as a boundary condition in a simulation. However, I could not find the report which describe the working properties of the heat exchanger, such as the coolant outlet temperature, the pressure drop and so on. Can anyone tell me where I can find it? (In the turorial, it says that the report would be in define->model->heat exchanger -> report. However, I could not find it there.)

Thanks a lot!!

from user guide, hope it help

To view the computed values of total heat rejection, outlet temperature, and inlet temperature for the entire heat exchanger, excluding any macros, you can use the following text command:

define user-defined heat-exchanger heat-exchanger-report

When prompted, specify the fluid zone for which you want to report the results.

To report the results for the macros, you can use the following text command:

define user-defined heat-exchanger heat-exchanger-macro-report

Specify the fluid zone for which you want to obtain information.

To view the connectivity of the heat exchanger groups, use the text command

(report-connectivity)
