Hello,

Can anybody please inform me, how do I calculate the density and mass flow rate in dieselFoam solver? I would like to calculate the gas inlet- density & mass flow rate. I understand the mass flow rate with injected liquid.

I tired the calcMassFlow as Philippose mentioned. However it is for incompressible case.
Calculation of mass flow across a boundary

Any ideas?

Thanks
Rachel

I forgot to mention that I would like to plot the density on a plane, as seen in these slides (#20).
