Hello this is probably a very simple question but if I wanted to look at the average velocity at a pipe exit would I create a plane at the exit and then plot the average velocity at that plane?
Would that work?
Thanks Iím quite new to ccm+ and cfd in general so sorry if itís basic

Hi Becky,


as a general suggestion: work through the provided tutorials when you start with a new tool! It's not wasted time.


To get the average velocity at the exit you would need to create a new report, a mass-flow report. As part select the exit boundary.


Alternatively, you could create a mass-flow-averaged report over the velocity vector in outflow-boundary-normal direction.




After creating a new report you can open the context menu (right click) on such report and add a monitor and plot.




If any terms are unclear search the StarCCM help, or ask again.



Best regards,
Sebastian
