How to find time averaged value of mass flow rate at outlet in ANSYS Fluent

      I am using ANSYS Fluent, Mixture model for air-water two-phase flow in T Junction.


      I want to find the time-averaged mass flow rate of water and air at the outlet for 5 seconds.


      Right now I am writing the mass flow rate of air-water in the output text file and then averaging it in the EXCEL.


      But, I could not understand, Is it ok are not?

      That's how I'd do it. There are time average options but, without checking, I can't remember if they extend to reports.

      nAs mentioned by make sure you write out your variable of interest as a text file. You can do this from the Report menu - using the write option. nOnce you do this, read this data into Excel and then start manipulating to average in time.nKarthikn
