VARIABLE NAMES
 
I am trying to plot shear stresses on a centrifugal pump.

In order to do that I need to define some equations and create a new variable but I cannot find the short name that CFX uses (e.g, ke for Turbulence kinetic energy) for the velocity gradients du/dx,du/dy...dw/dz and I need them for my equations.

If anyone knows the short names for the velocity gradients please let me know.

Thank you very much.

Re: VARIABLE NAMES
 
Alejandro,

You should be able to find a VARIABLES file in you cfx directory, ie ANSYSinc/cfx10/etc/VARIABLES

This will give you all the short and long names of the variables you have access to.

Re: VARIABLE NAMES
 
do you want use shear stresses to compute friction and windage? If yes could u give me your methodology? I am working on this subject and i would want to compare my methodology with others. thank u alejandro
