Controls

Options   contains the following radio buttons:
Mass Flow Rate   turns on the computation of the mass flow rate for the selected boundary zones.

Total Heat Transfer Rate   turns on the computation of the total heat transfer rate for the selected boundary zones.

Radiation Heat Transfer Rate   turns on the computation of the radiation heat transfer rate for the selected boundary zones.

Boundary Types   contains a selectable list of types of boundary zones. If you select (or deselect) an item in this list, all zones of that type will be selected (or deselected) automatically in the Boundaries list.

Boundary Name Pattern   specifies the pattern to look for in the names of boundary zones. Type the pattern in the text field and click Match to select (or deselect) the zones in the Boundaries list with names that match the specified pattern. See Section  29.2.1 for information about matching additional characters using * and ?.

Boundaries   contains a selectable list of valid boundary zones for flux reporting.

Results   displays the results of the selected flux computation for each boundary zone selected. The summation of the individual zone flux results is displayed in the box below the Results list.

Compute   computes the flux for each of the selected boundary zones and updates the Net (e.g., in kg/s, W, etc.).

Write...   opens the Select File dialog box (Section  2.1.2 and Section  2.1.2), which you can use to save the reported values to a file.
