Hi all,

My model is having two inlets and two outlets as shown in figure. I am injecting massless particles at the inlet1.
Using the particle trajectory of particles I want to calculate the fraction of flow through each outlet which is coming from inlet1.
I tried a lot in fluent, But I am not able to find a solution.
Can any one help me to solve the problem.


with regards,
Dhayananth

Hi,

If you have already run the simulation, then did you try getting your flow rate values from:
Results -> Reports ->Surface Integral -> Choose velocity and your outlets
From the known pipe diameter, material density and velocity you should be able to get you flow rate.
