 October 16, 2012, 11:46 temperature contour is unexpected #1 New Member   meysam Join Date: Sep 2012 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 4 hi all i want to simulate fluid in a cavity so i solve it is cfx but at cfx post when i want to see the temperature contour (about 95% )area of cavity is in avg temp but the boundary is the my temp that i specified at B.C it means that the temp changed very fast near the hot and cold wall that are B.C and i do not why i do not have distribution for temp? PLEASE HELP ME...............

It varies on the border of the walls where it is conected one to another. Is that it? If that is the case, first you have to be sure to visualize the variable with the hybrid option and not conservative to see the B.C. Another thing is that CFX tries to correct your boundary condition to avoid discontinuity. So it interpolates the temperature values at the border of the walls to try to satisfy both B.C. I hope that was your question, Regards, Possa.

 October 17, 2012, 03:33 hello possa #4 New Member   meysam Join Date: Sep 2012 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 4 thanks for your helpful answer you are true but when i see the hybrid option and not conservative the B.C is correct(as you observe the line at the picture below) but my problem is chenging the temp very fast and reach to average temp near the wall both cold and hot wall(that are my B.C) and i think i must have distribution temp on all domain but i do not have ............

You might simply need to run the simulation for a longer time. Please post an image of what you are simulating and the CCL file.

Just use the advanced features to attach it direct to the forum. But your problem is likely to be that the thermal field takes much longer to establish than the fluid field. So the fluid variables are converged but the heat is not. The heat imbalance is the parameter to keep an eye on here. In these situations you can usually increase the time step size to achieve full convergence quicker. This is all discussed in the FAQ
