I set up the monitor. All of the boundary condiations and materials are correct. I have a 3d model which I'll be running turbulent k-epsilon. I was told about setting up something in the reference values? I do not know what to enter here for the Area or lenth? My ahmed model is inside an enclosure. Can someone please help me in setting this up?
