Hello I'm using ANSYS FLUENT to simulate 2-D axisymmetric nozzle flow.

And I have to find mass flow rate at nozzle's exit.
But because I want to see effects of external flow, there are no outlet condition at nozzle's end but only downstream.

So I am thinking of integrating by multiplying the speed and density by drawing a line at the exit of the nozzle with CFD-POST.
And this method seems complex

Are there any ways to calculate mass flow rate?
I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know

How does your setup look. Usually use the function at your desired face: massFlow()@Nozzle Outlet

I solved the problem. Momentum was obtained at the nozzle exit using interpolate in Tecplot rather than in SU2. This momentum average was multiplied by the area to give the mass flow rate.
thank you

By dividing the volume flow rate by the fluid's mass density,, one may determine the mass flow rate. The volume flow rate is derived by multiplying the cross-sectional vector area, A, by the flow velocity of the mass components.
