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.

Surface Types
contains a selectable list of types of surfaces. If you select (or deselect) an item in this list, all surfaces of that type will be selected (or deselected) automatically in the
Surfaces list.
Surface Name Pattern
specifies the pattern to look for in the names of surfaces. Type the pattern in the text field and click
Match to select (or deselect) the zones in the
Surfaces list with names that match the specified pattern. See Section
29.5.2 for information about matching additional characters using
* and
?.
