Hello all
I simulated a flow through a tube and I need to make sure that the mass flow in and out are within a particular tolerance value. Could someone please tell me how can I calculate (and also visualize) the mass flow rate at the inlet and outlet on the fly or any other way to make sure that the mass flow in and out are conserved.
