Does anyone have done or know how to get the mass flow or some quantities like pressure or force etc at each cell of a surface.

To be precise I want to measure the mass flow of water at each cell on a wall where the water hits

Thanks in advance

I believe you can do this by creating a surface plane on the wall you're interested and then generate a report by selecting the plane as your object and choose the variable you want.

Essentially it would look at all the cells which are intersected by this plane and sum their values.
Sapere aude!
