Never mind. I misunderstood the defination of axisymmetric flow.


I am simulating half a 2D turbine (the other half is repeating this one). For postprocessing, I want to report the torque on a single blade and the mass integral in the area between two blades. Does Fluent double these values automatically? Because in the manual, it says For axisymmetric problems, all integral quantities are computed for an angle of 2pi radians. Now I am confused about in what case the value is automatically doubled.
