32.9.5 Report/Surface Integrals...

The Report/Surface Integrals... menu item opens the Surface Integrals panel.



Surface Integrals Panel


The Surface Integrals panel allows you to compute the area, mass and volume flow rate, standard deviation, integral, flow rate, area-weighted average, mass-weighted average, sum, facet average, facet minimum/maximum, vertex average, or vertex minimum/maximum quantity of a specified field variable on a selected list of surfaces. See Section  29.5 for details.
