Half-sphere solification/melting v

      Hello,

      I am studying a 2D half-sphere solidification melting problem in Ansys fluent.

      My first question is that I'd like to plot an exact point graph in the half-sphere by using the definition report. However, i am not sure which report type (area-weighted, mass-weighted...) i should choose for a certain point.

      Secondly, Is it correct to assign "axis" boundary condition to the center of the sphere and choose the "axisymmetric" as 2D space.

      Hello,
      You can use vertex-based reports (vertex - average, vertex-minimum, vertex-maximum).
      Regarding the second question - a 2D axisymmetric will consider a full sphere and not half. I just want to caution you here about this.
