Finding a more accurate volume for each cell
 
I use the command VOLUME, from the utilities menu. I make a script, and I get the volume for each cell. I import these data to another program and I sum the values. When I sum the total cell volume in Star-CD, I get 249.466 m^3. When I sum it in Mathlab I get 249.4701 m^3. This is a huge deviation for my problem, and can cause a error of upto 10%.

--- CUT --- Volume 1 FOR CELL 1:

VOLUME = 0.331032E-03 --- CUT ---

I see that Star-CD only lists 0.331032E-03 for this example case, but I guess it has stored much more accurate values. How do I get hold of these values?

Thanks in advance.

I figured it out.

oper getc volu 4, fills the post register 4 with the volumes.
