Hi All.
I am a beginner so I hope u will not mind the questions. I am working of liquid fluidized beds. I am tryng to simulate two dimensional fluid-solid flow. I want fluent to calculate the superficial fluid velocity at the end. How do I get that? Can I get them from surface/volume integrals?

for the superficial velocity, just divide ure flow rate by ure outlet section....
To get the flow rate, go to report--->Fluxes

Hi. I have already posted the following lines in my earlier post. Can u plz have alook at my situation and advise me accordingly.

I have a 2D (x,y) domain of size (0,0)(xmax,ymax) divided into a 50x50 grid. I want to find properties (e.g. y-velocity) of all points at any given instant in the following manner.

for (y=0,y=ymax,y++)
location[x][y]= ........ ?
y_velocity[x][y]=........ ?

It means that I fix y, then loop over all available x-cells to store values. Then increase y and repeat the process for x-cells. I need to store the values in arrays for further analysis or written to files. How do I add it to my UDF ?
