hi,
i have some problems about cfx, if i use multigray model in radiation model, cfx will apparance error as fllow: Prefix error in variable 'CH4.molf' referenced in parameter 'Absorption Coefficient' in object '/FLOW:Flow Analysis 1/DOMAIN:combustor/FLUID MODELS/THERMAL RADIATION MODEL/SPECTRAL MODEL/GRAY GAS:Gas 4'. The prefix 'CH4' is not recognised in domain 'combustor' in flow 'Flow Analysis 1'. but ch4 has been add in cfx. every boday who can help me...............

ANSYS CFX is case sensitive, CH4 and ch4 are different materials.
w/o looking at the command file, it is difficult to tell if fluid prefix is also needed for your case, i.e. Mixture.CH4.molf to be explicit about the fluid and the component the expression is referring to. Hope the above helps,

is as follows LIBRARY: CEL: &replace EXPRESSIONS: Tclip = Tmax * step((TTmax)/ 1.[K]) + T * step((TmaxT) / 1.[K]) Tmax = 2400 [K] abscoef1 = (k1 * (H2O.molf + CO2.molf + CO.molf) + kHC1 * CH4.molf) * pabs abscoef2 = (k2 * (H2O.molf + CO2.molf + CO.molf) + kHC2 * CH4.molf) * pabs abscoef3 = (k3 * (H2O.molf + CO2.molf + CO.molf) + kHC3 * CH4.molf) * pabs abscoef4 = (k4 * (H2O.molf + CO2.molf + CO.molf) + kHC4 * CH4.molf) * pabs b11 = 0.364 b12 = 0.266 b13 = 0.252 b14 = 0.118 b21 = 4.74E05 [K^1] b22 = 7.19E05 [K^1] b23 = 7.41E05 [K^1] b24 = 4.52E05 [K^1] k1 = 0.

I have find the solution to the problem，because i haven‘t add radiation model in
material.if I add radiation model in reacting mixture，it will be right。。。。。
