Solution Method & turbulent intensity in CFX 5.5.1

hi

I want to know what type of Alogrithem solution method used in CFX5.5.1 is it SIMPLE method?

and what does the defult number of turbulent intensity use in the CFX 5.5.1?

thank you

No, it's not SIMPLE. CFX-5 is a pressure based coupled flow solver, i.e., solves for u,v,w and p at the same time. There have been threads on this in the past, just search the archives.

The default turbulence levels are given in the manual. 3.7% intensity I think

Greetings to all, The previous answer is not certain 100%. Due to the explained thing previously they can be the schemes (SIMPLE,SIMPLER, SIMPLEC, PISO) But with certain details. I hope that another people us of a good answer to near of solution scheme. Best regards, Jhonny

Re: Solution Method & turbulent intensity in CFX 5

SIMPLE and its variants, as well as PISO are all segregated approaches. CFX-5 does not draw on these approaches at all and that *is* 100% certain. In fact, there is no option to use a segregated approach. I mentioned that the approach in CFX-5 has been discussed before in the CFX Forum:

Hi,I follow without understanding the algorithm of solution???? Please search: www.gre.ac.uk/~physica/phy2.11/theory/sode11.htm see Momentum-pressure coupling. Best regards.

Hi Jhonny,

As Neale pointed out, CFX-5 uses a coupled approach, not segregated. The SIMPLE and SIMPLEC algorithms are a means to account for pressure-velocity coupling between segregated equations.

SIMPLEC is an extension to SIMPLE developed at ASC (now part of CFX). For more on this see:

Van Doormaal, J.P.; Raithby, G.D.,"Enhancements of the SIMPLE Method for Predicting Incompressible Fluid Flows", Numerical Heat Transfer, Vol. 7, pp. 147-163, 1984.

This approach was later dropped in favor of solving for the coupled mass-momentum equations simultanously using a coupled algebraic multigrid approach. For a paper describing the approach, see the following pubished by ASC in 1988:

Hutchinson, B.R.; Galpin, P.F.; Raithby, G.D., "Application of Additive Correction Multigrid to the Coupled Fluid Flow Equations", Numerical Heat Transfer, Vol. 11, pp. 133-147, 1988.

Regards, Robin
