29.6.2 Generating a Volume Integral Report

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). Report $\rightarrow$ Volume Integrals...

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.
