Hello guys, I want to define mixing efficiency of ethylene with if-condition

How can I define this in CFD-Post?

I tried to define like this:

areaInt((if (C2h4.Mass Fraction <= 0.06796, C2h4.Mass Fraction, (C2h4.Mass Fraction*(C2h4.Mass Fraction-1)/(1-0.06796))))* Density * Velocity u)@ Plane 140

But it seems wrong.

Better ask these things in the CFX forum. These guys have most experience in CFD-Post. Nevertheless, an If statement does not exists in Post. However, you can use a step function. which is 1 when the argument is larger than 0. And it is zero below zero.
It should be something like

1. Define a variable func

2. func = Step(0.06796-C2h4.Mass Fraction)*C2h4.Mass Fraction + Step(C2h4.Mass Fraction0.06796-)*(C2h4.Mass Fraction*(C2h4.Mass Fraction-1)/(1-0.06796))))* Density * Velocity u)

3. areaInt(func)@ Plane 140

Regarding the step function, I'm not completely sure I did it correctly. Best to try the function in Excel first to graphically make sure everything is okay.
