Pressure moment for each timestep in transient run?
 
Hello All,

I am trying to simulate a fin submerged in water which has angular movement with respect to time. I need to find the pressure & viscous moment at each timestep. CFX gives pressure & viscous moments on wall at the end of solution. I guess it is only for final time only.

Does anybody have the idea, how to get pressure & viscous moments for each timestep in transient run?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

You could create a graph with X axis timestep

Generate a CEL expression for the term you want and send it to a monitor point. Then you can extract the full time history from the solver manager.

Thank you very much Tremore & Glenn.

I found out the way to plot moments vs. time. Actually CFX monitors the forces & moments. In Solver manager, I just need to create one more monitor.

Thank you very much for your reply.
