Thermal expansion of a fluid

      Hi,


      I am new to ANSYS R19, and I want to see the thermal expansion of a fluid in ANSYS.


      I have a table of density of the fluid against my temperature. How can I do it ?


      I can work it around by getting the average temperature of my body and export to excel and get the density for each step and get a result.


      But I don't know if this method is okay because it's the average temp how can i get temperature of each units and integrate it to get my volume.


      Thanks.

      If using Fluent, look at the material properties and set the density using the piecewise linear option. 


      If you're not using Fluent please say which code you are using.
