 October 21, 2007, 22:57 Concentration Scale Data Interpretation #1 usker Guest   Posts: n/a Dear all, My question is: let's say we have transient spray and combustion results in a constant volume chamber with temperature, NOx, soot, etc. data. For example, for soot distribution I can see the soot concentration distribution within the flame at each time step. How to determine total soot concentration at the certain time step? I think if I calculate the average looking at the scale the result will not be quite accurate. Because for some time steps the area (or the volume) of particular concentration can be large but max.concentration (red color part of the scale) can be low and viceversa. If I knew total concentration at each time step then I could integrate the function over time (concentration over time) and determine total soot concentration over a complete spray and combustion event. Do I sound reasonable? Please advise

 October 22, 2007, 22:06 Re: Concentration Scale Data Interpretation #2 usker Guest   Posts: n/a OK, let me put it in this way: Is it possible to know total (average) mass fraction, from the scalar mass fraction (concentration) distribution (colorful scale), at each time step(transient)? Is there any option in Prostar to determine this? If not, whoever experienced this, please share your knowledge. Regards

Hope that helps!
