The volume, sum, maximum, minimum, volume integral, volumeweighted average, mass integral, and massweighted average can be obtained for a selected field variable in selected cell zones in the domain.
Example uses of the different types of volume integral reports are given below:

Volume: You can compute the total volume of a fluid region.

Sum: You can add up the discretephase mass or energy sources to determine the net transfer from the discrete phase. You can also sum userdefined sources of mass or energy.

Maximum: The maximum value of the selected variable at each cell in the selected zone.

Minimum: The minimum value of the selected variable at each cell in the selected zone.

Volume Integral: For quantities that are stored per unit volume, you can use volume integrals to determine the net value (e.g., integrate density to determine mass).

VolumeAverage: You can obtain volume averages of mass sources, energy sources, or discretephase exchange quantities.

Mass Integral: You can determine the total mass of a particular species by integrating its mass fraction.

MassAverage: You can find the average value (such as average temperature) in a fluid zone.
