Liquid Fraction
Hi there,

I have a small block (3-D) in which I want to analyze its liquid fraction. I supply a heat flux through its top surface and the block starts to melt downwards.

By displaying contours of liquid fraction, I can see the liquid fraction at different times of simulation, i.e at 5mins or 10min.

For my project, I need to plot a graph of liquid fraction versus time at 5mins interval up to a time of 60 mins. May I ask if in Fluent, is there any function that allows me to know the TOTAL liquid fraction in the small block, i.e, the volume of the the block that has already melted (So far, I've only been able to display the liquid fraction contours).

If I have defined a plane which sections the small block, am I able to know the area on the plane of the small black which has already melted?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers! Linus
