Transonic Heat Transfer Problem in Concentric Pipe
Posted Thu July 07, 2005 @01:07PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Help Desk ejazkd writes "Hello,

I am trying to solve a transonic heat transfer problem in a concentric tube arrangment. I am having a problem in setting boundary conditions and in achieveing convergence.

At the inlet, a mass inlet boundary condition is applied, and on the outlet a pressure outlet BC is applied, which should be when in the transonic domain. But I am bit confused with supplying the pressure values.

Can somebody guide me on how to achieve convergence in this transonic heat transfer problem?

CD-adapco's CAD-embedded CFD range offers outstanding ease of use, and, for the first time, delivers industrial strength CFD to the Design and Product Engineering communities. With STAR-CAT5 the CFD functionality is provided from within the CATIA environment, and accessed as additional items from within CATIA's specification tree. This intuitive approach to CFD means that even novice users are able to quickly obtain industrial strength flow simulation results. Based on the technology behind the industry leading STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+, STAR-CAT5 is a gateway to the most comprehensive flow simulation tools in the world.
