 January 24, 2007, 15:53 Area and mass average values on a section #1 Peter N Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, No-one else seems to be able to help me and it seems that some of the people on this forum know more than anyone else about star. Here goes; I am doing an analysis on a mixed flow turbine using Star CD 3.24. I have done a single vane steady state analysis and would now like to evaluate the mass flow averaged temperature at the inlet and outlet to the turbine wheel (not the mesh inlet and outlets) and the area averaged pressures at the same places. I do have .usr files containing the inlet and outlet coordinates and vertex (or possibly cell) numbers but cannot find a way of using these. I hope that description of my problem makes sense. If someone could help me with this I would be eternally thankful Thanks Pete
