If you use from goals to measure some parameter in any surface you can use surface goal before run the CFD. Once you ran the CFD then you wanted to find some surface some parameter values, then you can use surface parameters. one more thing while define surface goal you can use the surface goal for convergence criteria. I checked with some sample model now i am using solidworks 2014 Sp5.0 64 bit. If i am wrong correct me. Thanks

Goal = planned sensor used for convergence
parameter = after the fact measurement
i think I would expect the velority at the surface to be zero but either method with the same parameter and faces selected should give the same number
but note, if your mode. And solution become disconnected, goals and parameters may be different, Parameter being wrong. Chris m just recently ran into this with surface plots but also affects surface parameters
