Symmetry condition and result reports
 
Hi,

Does anyone know when using a symmetry boundary condition to simulate just half the complete model if when reporting results we get the results for half the model or for the complete model.

Same for boundary conditions, if I put 0.001kg/s mass flow inlet in the "half inlet" with the symmetry condition, will I get 0.001 in the half or in the complete inlet so a real mass flow of 0.002kg/s

Thanks

it computes only one half of your model.
So apply factor 2 to your results
