Default Pressure drop in symmetric models

Hi All,

I have a quarter symmetric model, in which I want to calculate the pressure drop (total pressure loss). If I post process the quarter model for pressure drop, do I need to consider the quarter symmetry? Or just calculate the total pressure difference in quarter model and report it?

Another question: Do fluent reports the full mass flow rate in this case? Or I have to multiply it by 4 (quarter symmetry) to get actual mass flow rate?
