To obtain a report (of quantities such as the volume, sum, minimum, maximum, volume integral, volume-weighted average, mass-weighted integral, or mass-weighted average) for selected cell zones for a specified field variable, use the
Volume Integrals panel (Figure
29.6.1).

Volume Integrals Panel
The steps for generating the report are as follows:
1.
Specify which type of report you are interested in by selecting
Volume,
Sum,
Max,
Min,
Volume Integral,
Volume-Average,
Mass Integral, or
Mass-Average under
Options.
2.
If you are generating a report of volume, skip to the next step. Otherwise, use the
Field Variable drop-down lists to select the field variable to be used in the integral, sum, or averaged volume integrations. First, select the desired category in the upper drop-down list. You can then select a related quantity from the lower list. (See Chapter
30 for an explanation of the variables in the list.)
3.
In the
Cell Zones list, choose the zones on which to compute the volume, sum, max, min, volume integral, volume-weighted average, mass integral, or mass-averaged quantity.
4.
Click on the
Compute button. Depending on the type of report you have selected, the label for the result will change to
Total Volume,
Sum,
Max,
Min,
Total Volume Integral,
Volume-Weighted Average,
Total Mass-Weighted Integral, or
Mass-Weighted Average, as appropriate.
The computed results will also be printed in the
FLUENT console window.
5.
To save the computed results to a file, click the
Write... button and specify the filename in the resulting
Select File dialog box.
