Please I need to know how can we measure the viscosity of the fluid but it does not show in Results?

You usually define the viscosity of a fluid before you run the simulation, unless you define it as a finction of temperature (polynomial function for example). If you do that then you can easily get the temperature data and create a function to calculate the viscosity in Fluent or CFD Post. I invite my other colleagues to share any other ideas! Cheers

If you use CFD-Post, you can either plot the viscosity as a contour on the location of interest. Or if you need to find the average viscosity throughout the fluid domain, you can use the Calculators tab as shown below.
