Post Processing (droplet volume calculation)

i am new at using flow3d. I am trying to simulate droplet generation, but how getting difficulties in calculating the droplet volume or dia.

Hi~ What do you mean you are getting difficulties calculating droplet volume or diameter? MC

I am trying to calculate the droplet diameter.. my question or the volume of droplet, I am simulating the droplet generation in 2D.

Re: Post Processing (droplet volume calculation)
Hi~ One thing you can do is increase the number of tick marks in the scale to help estimate the diameter. To this you would first need to render your simulation in 2-D then go to the custom tab select flsinp.tmp from the drop-down menu within &control add nxlab or nylab or nzlab depending on the axis set that equal to the number of tick marks


iconv= 0, icgs= -1, icgso= 2, NXLAB=7,

xea(001)=-1.00000E-11, yea(001)=-1.00000E-11, zea(001)=-1.00000E-11, / MC
