Pressure difference between two sides of the wall (Fluent)

    • Ines_

      Hi everyone!

      I am performing fluid simulations in Fluent and I am getting the pressure in the fluid wall. Part of this wall is inmersed in the fluid and I am interested in getting the pressure difference between the two sides of it. Is there any way to select these two surfaces and getting the pressure difference?

      Thank you so much in advance,

      You can create a solid wall (2D rectangle or 3D block). Once you have this, you should be able to select the two edges (in 2D) or surfaces (in 3D) and estimate your pressure difference.

      thanks for your answer! What do you mean by creating a solid wall? with which tool can I do that? Also, in what part of the process should I do it (preprocessing (SpaceClaim) or postprocessing (Fluent))?
      Thanks again In├®s
      PD: my model is 3D

      Can you add a screenshot of what you want to do? Are the walls two different surfaces?
