 August 4, 2003, 00:57 mole concentration of species (kmole/m3) #1 neihad@hotmail.com Guest   Posts: n/a Can anyone tell me how the mole concentration of species (kmole/m3) is calculated in Fluent? Why kmole is used not mole! In real life the concentration of pollutants are not high e.g. CO concentration in a car park should be less then 30 mg/m3). Have any one validated the concentration results against measurement data? Thanks for your time

It is true that fluent uses kmol/m3, which can be irritating. I have chosen to model concentration with a UDS and standard mass flow flux function. In this case you can use any units you care for.

I think it will good to know how fluent is predicting the mole concentration at the pollutant source from the boundary conditions (e.g. mass fraction and inlet velocity). Therefore, we could compare our calculations and measurements with fluent methodology. Regards

You can always convert these from one to the other with little effort. If you want to see it differently on your screen I suggest you write a custom field function to multiply your results appropriately. If you want mass concentration to be reported instead of molar concentration just define a custom field fucntion as: C_mass_i = rho*Yi It will take less time to define than the time I've spent writing this email!
