Hi there,
I'm using the Custom Field Function to define a function i.e A/B
I want to monitor the [integral]A/[integral]B

Using the surface monitor panel I choose:

Report of Custom Field Functions...

custom-function-1

Report type Integral


but I get the [integral](A/B) instead of [integral]A/[integral]B

How to monitor [integral]A/[integral]B ?

Thanks in advance

You may have to alternatively monitor both [integral]A and [integral]B and save to a file first and let the other post-processing software to handle [integral]A/[integral]B later, if you're sure that [integral](A/B) is not equal to [integral]A/[integral]B

panda thank you for replying.

When you say
Quote:

what do you mean?

Shall I import the data i.e to matlab or excel?
Is it possible to use saved data (filename.out) in fluent to enhance post-processing?

it would be easy for excel to process the data, i don't think Fluent can manipulate your saved data too much.
