    Finding Volumetric Flow Rate in an External Flow Simulation.

      Hello,

       

      So I am currently doing a project for a class, and it involves modeling different bumpers to see how they affect the air flowing through an engine oil cooler on a porche 914. I have just started using Flow Simulation, and am having trouble choosing the right goals to find the air flow through the cooler. To describe my problem set up:

       

      Testing Initial Conditions of 40 70 and 110 mph

      External flow through Air at 293 K

      Current Goals are Total Pressure and X component of normal force (drag)

      Pictures of assembly are attached.

       

      I am assuming it is a surface goal, but I am not sure if I have to create a surface, like a lid used for the internal flow tutorials, that would not affect the air flowing through the cooler.

       

      Any help would be appreciated!
