Rajkool is on a distinguished road
Hello all,

I know it seems to be a basic question or it might be a big mistake. Please excuse me and help me.

My model as a number of inlets and one outlet. One type of fluid flows in one inlet and the rest of them have other fluid. So, I have a total of two fluids. I have two velocity inlets and one pressure outlet with default settings of physics, solution method, and controls.

I have been trying for velocity profile and mass flow distribution. But when I hybrid initialize, plot and calculate.

I get a mass flow rate graph as follows in the attached image. I cannot see any values on Y-axis? If the solution is, I should provide Mass-flow inlet. Then, Can't it be done with the velocity profile and mass flow rate can be calculated in a single simulation?

Please let me know, what all changes could I make or what is the problem.

Thank you

Can't tell what models you're using to say what you should be doing to get the massflow but check the setting on your massflow rate report.
