Define/Mixing Planes... menu item opens the
Mixing Planes panel.
Mixing Planes Panel
Mixing Planes panel allows you to define the mixing planes for a mixing plane model. See Section
10.10.2 for details about using the items below.
contains a list from which you can select an existing mixing plane, and an informational field in which
FLUENT displays the name of the currently selected (or most recently created) mixing plane.
Upstream Zone, Downstream Zone
contain lists from which you can select the boundaries on the upstream and downstream sides of the mixing plane, and informational fields that show the names of the zone you selected in each list. (You cannot edit these fields; the name in each field will be the name of the zone you selected in the list below it.)
specifies the number of radial or axial locations used in constructing the boundary profiles for circumferential averaging. This item appears only in 3D.
Mixing Plane Geometry
defines the geometry of the mixing plane interface. This item appears only in 3D.
specifies that information at the mixing plane interface is to be circumferentially averaged into profiles that vary in the radial direction, e.g.,
specifies that circumferentially averaged profiles are to be constructed that vary in the axial direction, e.g.,
contains parameters related to the mixing plane calculation.
specifies the under-relaxation factor for updating the boundary values at mixing planes.
sets the specified
Under-Relaxation to its default value, as assigned by
FLUENT. After execution, the
Default button becomes the
Under-Relaxation to its most recently saved value (i.e., the value before
Default was selected). After execution, the
Reset button becomes the
creates the specified mixing plane (and assigns it a name in the
Mixing Plane field).
