 September 2, 2004, 04:18 Transient Boundary Conditions #1 James Date Guest   Posts: n/a Hi guys, A simple question: Which is the best way to apply a transient boundary condition i.e. time varying inflow condition using data from a look up table, rather than a user defined function f(t) in the CCL language? I've used the CCL language to apply transient boundary conditions that are easily described by a mathematical function dependant on time, however, I was wondering what approach is best for boundary condition which aren't easily described by mathematical functions. In CFX-4.3 I used to use a user FORTRAN routine called USERBCS, is a similar approach taken in CFX-5.7? Regards James

(the data can be either tab/comma seperated. one set of data on one line in notepad/wordpad) remember unlike in CFX-4 you need not have the first line representing the number of data points. Go to Create--> Library objects--> User Functions in the pre window (define a name to the funtion being created). Suppose you create a function called as myfunction, which specifies temperature as a funtion of time. The argument of the function would be time while the result would be temprature. Give the units the argument and result enclosed in square brackets. you can eiher enter the data one by one or right click in the data box and click on import and import the file. In the boundary condition tab, you can refer to this function as myfunction(t) where t refers to time
