Hey all,

I have a simple stream of water flowing in the -z direction, and would simply like to find out the total flow rate across its area. The file is is .vtk and I have seen some people write about using the surface flows feature, however I am not sure how to make this work.

I have also seen some people write about using the calculator filter and obtaining the vel_z values, but again, I am not sure how to define an area for after that step.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
