How to Check Mass Flow Rate in 2D Analysis - CFX
I want to design a 3D diffuser for Horizontal Axis tidal turbine. Purpose of the diffuser is to accelerate the incoming fluid velocity at the throat (minimum distance inside the diffuser).
As the diffuser is symmetrical so i want to do the 2D analysis in CFX to check the velocity at the throat, as 3D meshing in ICEM is very difficult for me. i have created the mesh in ICEM for 2D model.
I want to know the mass flow rate through the diffuser as it would be if i have done the 3D simulation, and also the drag of the diffuser ...... as i have done the 2D simulation can i still get the mass flow rate and drag ?
It may be a stupid question ..... i am new in CFX and need help from anyone of you. Thanks in advance.
