 January 16, 2004, 12:24 nonsense Temp. values #1 bogesz Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, I'm running a trans. simulation: the initial Temp. is 266 C in a wall, near the wall water flows with the same temperature (pressure is 123 bar). At t=0 water enters at the inlet with a temp. of 166 C, and that's the transient. I have a solid domain for the wall, we want to investigate the heat conduction behavior of the wall. So the initial Temp. for both the fluid and solid domain is 266 C. The strange thing: after the start of the transient the global maximum value of the T starts rising until it reaches 278 C. It is hard to find the location of those "extreme T values", but for example it is quite easy to display tiny regions (only in the solid domain) with 267-268 C or so. But this is absolutely insane since there's only cooling down from the init. T value, no heat source in the problem. The calculation seems to be converged. I use cfx 5.5.1 any ideas? thanks bog

I also suspect you may be using a pure tet mesh. If this is the case, try using inflation on the solid-fluid interfaces - this should reduce the problem significantly. Johnson

 February 2, 2004, 08:29 Re: nonsense Temp. values #5 bogesz Guest   Posts: n/a hi Martin, I tried both first order and second order high res. for the advection schemes and first order and second order backw. Euler for time discretisation. What do you mean over/undershoot? wich order may result in wich? thanks bog
