torque calculation
hello everyone, the calculator in the CFX post is not able to calculate the torque for a specific result file. how to calculate torque using expressions in cfx post. can anyone help me... thank you

Re: torque calculation
What exactly are you trying to calculate torque on?

Re: torque calculation
am trying to calculate torque on a blade rotating abt xaxis. by the way what happened to forum at waterloo.ansys site.

Re: torque calculation
The CFX Forum was down for a few days due to server problems. It is back up now.
More specific to my question, are you trying to calculate torque on a surface or volume? The torque calculation will not work on a volume. Regards, Robin 
Re: torque calculation
i need the torque to be calculated for surfaces only. actually some functions(mass flow, massflow ave,torque) are not working for this specific result file. full(all) variables are written to the result file. may be some bug since the file is large. so i need to know how the torque can be calculated (in my case for the surfaces rotating about xaxis to be particular). regards sudhakar

Re: torque calculation
Hi Sudhakar,
It's possible the resutls file is incomplete. You could define an expression to integrate the torque instead by calculating the local Z and Y components of force times the radius. ty local = Pressure * Area Z * Y tz local = Pressure * Area Y * Z Torque on Blade = int(tz local + ty local)@blade Regards, Robin 
Re: torque calculation
thanks Robin. But am not able to use that integral function in CEL. It gives some syntax error. so what is the syntax to use integral function regards sudhakar

Re: torque calculation
Sorry, that should have been sum() not int().

Re: torque calculation
Thank you Robin. I checked the expression for a result file(centrifugal pump) where i was able to calculate the torque using the calculator. but the value (for one blade surface) that i get using the expression is double than that i get from the functional calculator. is there anything wrong in the torque expression procedure i follow...my case is a centrifugal pump rotating abt x axis tylocal = Pressure * AreaZ * Y AreaZ = Area * Normal Y Similarly tzlocal = Pressure * AreaY * Z AreaY = Area * Normal Z
Torque on blade = sum(tylocal+tzlocal)@bladesurface 
Re: torque calculation
Area Z = Area * Normal Z Area Y = Area * Normal Y

Re: torque calculation
then too the value is about twice of the value got from the functional calculator.

Re: torque calculation
Hi Sudhankar,
I just checked on one of my results files and the answers nearly match (there will be a slight difference, since the torque calculation uses the integration point values). My expressions are: EXPRESSIONS: Area Z = Area * Normal Z Area Y = Area * Normal Y ty local = Pressure * Area Z * Y tz local = Pressure * Area Y * Z Torque on Blade =sum(tz local + ty local)@BLADE END If you still see a difference, make sure your expressions are correct for your axis of rotation and that your regions are the same.
