I have a short question. Is mass conserved in all the schemes used in FLUENT simulation? If yes, how can i disable mass conservation as my simulation involves a non-mass conserved diffusion process across a membrane.

Thank you.

It sounds like you're doing a transient (time dependent) simulation. Set the study up as such in FLUENT and you should be just fine.
