When you use one of the general multiphase models, some additional field functions will be available for postprocessing, as listed in this section. Most field functions that are available in single phase calculations will be available for either the mixture or each individual phase, as appropriate for the general multiphase model and specific options that you are using. See Chapter 30 for a complete list of field functions and their definitions. Chapters 28 and 29 explain how to generate graphics displays and reports of data.
VOF Model
For VOF calculations you can generate graphical plots or alphanumeric reports of the following additional item:
This item is available for each phase.
The variables that are not phase specific are available (e.g., variables in the Pressure... and Velocity... categories) represent mixture quantities. Thermal quantities will be available only for calculations that include the energy equation.
Mixture Model
For calculations with the mixture model, you can generate graphical plots or alphanumeric reports of the following additional items:
This item is available only for secondary phases.
This item is available for each phase.
The variables that are not phase specific are available (e.g., variables in the Pressure... category) represent mixture quantities. Thermal quantities will be available only for calculations that include the energy equation.
Eulerian Model
For Eulerian multiphase calculations you can generate graphical plots or alphanumeric reports of the following additional items:
This item is available only for secondary phases.
This item is available only for granular phases.
This item is available only for granular phases.
This item is available only for granular phases.
This item is available for each phase.
The availability of turbulence quantities will depend on which multiphase turbulence model you used in the calculation. Thermal quantities will be available (on a perphase basis) only for calculations that include the energy equation.
Multiphase Species Transport
For calculations using species transport with either of the multiphase models, you can generate graphical plots or alphanumeric reports of the following additional items:
This item is available for each species.
This item is available for each species.
This item is available for each species.
This item is available for each species.
This item is available for each species.
This item is available for each species.
This item is available for each species.
This item is available for each mass transfer mechanism that you defined.
Thermal quantities will be available only for calculations that include the energy equation.
Wet Steam Model
FLUENT provides a wide range of postprocessing information related to the wet steam model.
The wet steam related items can be found in Wet Steam.... category of the variable selection dropdown list that appears in the postprocessing panels.
