23.15.1 Model-Specific Variables

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:

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:

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:

The availability of turbulence quantities will depend on which multiphase turbulence model you used in the calculation. Thermal quantities will be available (on a per-phase 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:

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 drop-down list that appears in the postprocessing panels.
