I would like to calculate the mass flow rates (across the computational boundaries) in my external flow analysis.
I'm just curious to see the answer, flow is from natural convection only.
Is there a way to do this?
One way to get the mass flow is to make a goal.
Why do you care the mass flow in external flow? Mass flow rate is relevant for internal flows.
I'm just curious to see the answer; flow is from natural convection only, I'm curious to know how much air mass the heat moves.
Take a look in to this postHow to calculate the mass flow rate on Solidworks Flow Simulation ?
Thank you Mark
I created a hollow box the size of my computational domain. I was able to use the inside surfaces to make mass flow rate goals as well as your suggestions. And then use component control to have it "ignore" the box. I am running it now, and it is working. I am very pleased . Thank you.
