retrieve material density
Hello All,

Does anyone know the marco which could retrieve material density? something like MATERIAL_PROP(sp, PROP_mwi) for molecular weight?

Thank you all in advance!

Re: retrieve material density
Hi Rooike,

If you want to retrieve density data just to annalyse the results then you can go to the solve/monitors/surface of solve/monitors/ volume sections.

This way you can report the maximum, minimum or average density on a face or volume node.

Hope this is of some help.

If you need the values for inclusion in a UDF, you can do this too, but it is a bit more difficult. You may have to store the values in User Defined memory

Re: retrieve material density
Thank you! Mcgregor. I figured out the MARCO--it is MATERIAL_PROP(sp, PROP_rho). However, your solution helped me other problems.
