How to get the volume of filled region in a VOF prolem in Fidap
How to get the volume occupied by fluid region in a VOF prolem in Fidap
When you run a VOF simulation, the volume occupied by fluid region will be reported in FDSTAT file at each time step.
For e.g., the FDSTAT file of example problem, "FILLING AND SOLIDIFICATION IN A MOLD", ex48 of Example manual has following lines.
===== ANALYSIS OF FLUID ADVECTION FOR TIME STEP 19
SUB-STEP 1 ---- SUB-INCREMENT .53653E-03
ADVECTION COMPLETE FOR TIME STEP 19, VOLUME .12365E+02, TIME .18257E-01
===== TIME STEP 19 ========= AT TIME 0.1826E-01 INCREMENT 0.5365E-03 ======
The value of VOLUME keyword gives you the total filled volume at particular time step.
