 June 22, 2015, 16:12 How to Calculate Mass Flow Through Boundary #1 New Member   Venkatesh V Join Date: Sep 2009 Posts: 24 Rep Power: 13 I have transient data loaded into EnSight. How to I calculate mass flow through inlet boundary and plot it in graph. Also I would like to animate the graph by highlighting mass flow at current time.

Open the calculator tool (icon at the top-left). If you have the density field, then calculate Momentum = velocity*density. Then, calculate the Mass flow by using the "Flow" function (that calculates the Surface integral of the input vector field) setting Momentum as the vector field. Give a look at this link for more details on the Flow calculations (in particular, point b) focuses on Mass flow calculations): https://support.ceisoftware.com/hc/e...-using-EnSight You should now have created a new variables that is your Mass flow. It will appear in the variable list (bottom-left) under Constants - in EnSight, "constants" means constant in space, not in time. Right-click on it and select "Plot vs. time". The plot of the flow vs. time will appear on the viewport. If you change timestep, the vertical line corresponding to the time at which you are will update automatically. Would you have more questions or problems, let us know. Best Regards, Marina Galvagni CEI Software Engineer Support

Any reply will be appreciable. thanks in advance

And, you have a 2D part which is the cross section where you want to calculate the mass flow. In this case, first create a new variable: species_momentum = species concentration * density * velocity This will be a vector field that is the momentum for only that species, not the whole gas. Now calculate the Flow and FlowRate using this species_momentum instead of the velocity. Give a look at https://support.ceisoftware.com/hc/e...-using-EnSight for more details on the flow calculations in EnSight. Best Regards, Marina Galvagni CEI Software Support Engineer
