Percentile or histograms based on volume or mass, not on elements
 
Hi,

I want to report some statistics about a flow, such as, which percentage of the volume has lower velocities than some value (e.g. 0.5m/s). I see there is a possibility to build histograms and this could be enough. However, they are based on the number of elements, but each element can have different volume so knowing that 50% of elements have velovities inferior to 0.5 m/s is not of help!!

Do you know any way to achieve this? I was thinking that if Fluent is not able perhaps some postprocessing software like Tecplot360 would fit my needs (i have never used any before).

Thanks in advance
