Default Avrage in one direction
Posts: n/a
Dear all,

I have a small question.

My calculation domain is a rectangular duct.

10m(streamwise)* 2m(vertical)*5m(spanwise).

I have got the converged solution using FLUENT.

If I want to get the spanwise averaged mean velocity, is there any simple way in FLUENT? or other postprocessing software like tecplot?

More specificly, I'd like to get the spawise averaged mean velocity at x=1m, x=4,x=8m.

Any sugestion is welcome.

How about finding out the mean volume flow rate from FLUENT directly and diving it by the area at x=1,x=4,x=8.?

I am not sure if Fluent can do it or not, but I did something similar but with temperatures. I just wrote my temperatures out to an Excel file and did the post processing in Excel
