Where is silicon in the CFX material library
 
Hi,

Where is silicon in the CFX material library?

If a material is not available in CFX you need to create a new material and define its properties.

How to check whether it is available or not? There are a lot of libraries in CFX.

If none of the CFX libraries contain the property of silicon, then I shall look for international standard temperature dependent property of silicon at which website?

Right click on Material >> Open the library
You will see an option to select different library ccl's in CFX

A quick search there told me that of all the libraries CFX has (some 15 odd), none has Silicon, neither does FLUENT.
You can try some sites for the properties. How about matweb.com etc? They are quite resourceful.
