Water vapour condensation in CFX-5.7.1
 
Hi

I'm trying to simulate water vapour condensation on surface. I've modified boiling_water.ccl in /etc/model-templates. But condensation seems not start. I've tried various Nu, boundary conditions (wall temperature) etc. with no success. Boiling itself is quite good calculated. Has anybody some experience on this? I am using CFX-5.7.1. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Below is an example of the model.

Best regards.

Re: Water vapour condensation in CFX-5.7.1
 
hello I am interesting in the condensation in the presence of non condensable gases...I want to use CFX in the modeling of the condenser, any help or cooperation is welcome. I am not a professional in the field of CFX or Ansys. thanks
