Use of table of steam properties
I carried out a simulation of one stage of HP steam turbine in CFX 10, using the table steam properties "SteamHP.rgp".I have the following problem:
If I use the heat transfer model "total energy" I find that the static pressure is higher than total pressure (b.c. inlet: Ptot,Ttot - b.c. outlet: mass flow rate. The values of these b.c. are the real design conditions and they are the only conditions I know).
If I use the heat transfer model "Thermal energy" the solver seems to work "correctly" and in CFX-post I find reasonable values. I can accept this transfer model for the present, because the Mach number in the throat area is 0.25 about, but does anyone know the reason of this behaviour?
