29.1 Reporting Conventions

For 2D problems, FLUENT computes all integral quantities for a unit depth equivalent to $1$ meter. This value can by adjusted to match the specific dimension of your application only by manually revising the Depth in the Reference Values panel (see Section  29.10).

figure   

The default value of Depth will be equivalent to $1$ meter, even if the units are changed for depth in the Set Units panel (e.g., if the units for depth are changed to cm in the Set Units panel, the value of Depth in the Reference Values panel will be $100$ cm).

For axisymmetric problems, all integral quantities are computed for an angle of $2\pi$ radians.
