 December 17, 2004, 07:58 Force import in CFX #1 Dimitriy Guest   Posts: n/a Hi every one Let me explain my problem. For example I have a cubic volume (domain). All of the cube's boundaries are walls with different temperatures so that the fluid flow is entirely within the domain and driven by thermal convection. (I do not have inlet, outlet….. boundaries, there are only walls with different temperature.) I need to import a distributed body force which operates within the domain that tries to change the convection motion of the liquid. Please tell me how to implement the force data in the CFX

 December 17, 2004, 08:25 Re: Force import in CFX #2 Rui Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, You have to create a sub-domain, which shall include the whole domain. Then create a momentum source, which you may set as a constant or as an expression function of the variables you want. May I ask what force is that, trying to change the convection motion? Regards, Rui

What shall I do in this situation? Regards, Dmytro

 December 17, 2004, 15:06 Re: Force import in CFX #4 Ribeiro Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Dmitri You should define a User Function on CFX-Pre. Use the Option parameter Interpolation (Data Input). Then choose in interpolation Data Option Three Dimensional. Right-click on Coordinate-Value frame and choose Import... Indicate your file. You should be aware that your file must be in the CFX format. Read the documentation. Regards, Ribeiro

It is kg/m^2s^2 but force is kg*m/s^2. Dose it mean that in expression should be something else except force? Redards, Dmytro

 December 21, 2004, 16:31 Re: Force import in CFX #6 Rui Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Thats's because the momentum equations have units of Force per unit Volume: (kg*m/s^2)/m^3=kg/m^2s^2. And body forces (as gravity) only make sense as force/volume. Regards and Merry Christmas, Rui
