 August 21, 2006, 06:53 flow through time #1 seeta Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links hi i would like to find out the flow through time for unsteady case in fluent. flow through time means" if u take fluid particle at inlet the time taken by that fluid particle to comet to out let" can any body help me out. thanx in advance

Lets imagine the velocity at the inlet is 5m/s and the length of your domain is 50m. The flow should exit the outlet in 10 seconds typical. so you can run your transient simulation for 10 seconds and track the fluid particels at various time intervals. Hope these are helpful. Regards Rajit

So certain fluid particles might take more time to leave the domain than the other. Hope this answers your question. Regards Rajit
