cfxmar is on a distinguished road
Im simulating the impact of waves on a breakwater.
I need to calculate the overtopping, that is, the water volume falling over the breakwater. I have tried with expressions like:

Water at 25 C. Volume@region and it doesnt work.

Could kindly anyone tell me how to calcule it?

Look at the CFX Reference manual for how to use these functions. Volume gives the volume of a region. You want to integrate the volume fraction over the domain to get the amount of water. Try volumeInt(Water at 25C.Volume Fraction)@Region or something like it.
