Hello,

one quastion about "initialize profile data" in combination with Ansys CFX 14.5. Is it possible to use/change the rotational speed of a domain from "outside" by a set of profile data??Or is there another possibility to change the rotational speed automatically during a transient calculation?
I also want to change the massflow rate too but this should be quite easy by a profile data.


Example of my planned transient calculation:

t = 0 - 5s: n = 2rpm, massFlow rate= 1kg/s
t = 5 - 10s: n = 1rpm, massFlow rate = 0.5kg/s
t = 10 -15s: n = 1.5rpm, massFlow rate = 0.7kg/s


Maybe someone can help me with my problem!

Thank you in advance!!

Use CEL. Look into either step function or if function.

Thank you very much for your support, but unforunately I cannot find the step function for rotational speed and massFlow (correlation between those two parameters) depending on a number of time steps . Therefore, it would be very nice, iy you can give me more explicit information (description, manual, tutorial, ...) or an short example of changing the rotational speed and massFlow depending on a number of time steps??

Example of my planned transient calculation:

time steps = 0 - 500: n = 2rpm, massFlow rate= 1kg/s
timesteps = 501 - 1000: n = 1rpm, massFlow rate = 0.5kg/s
timesteps = 1001 -1500: n = 1.5rpm, massFlow rate = 0.7kg/s

So the rotational speed and massFlow rate should be constant for a specific time steps period. Therefore, I want to load a list of values into CFX-Pre. But if this is also possible with using the step-function, it would be more elegant.

Thank you in advance.

The syntax of "if" statements is quite simple. It is simple to implement your function this way. Have a look at the tutorials which come with CFX form examples of if and step functions.

Alternately you could use a 1D interpolation file. Again, they are demonstrated in the tutorials.
