 August 8, 2007, 09:22 Solid-Solid CHT Model #1 Parthipan Guest   Posts: n/a Dear all, I am modelling a solid-solid CHT model in CFX. It consist of an inner volume and an outer bounding volume. The inner volume is the source of heat and I want to see the heat transfer in the outer volume. I have been given only the Thermal conductivity of both the materials and the heat produced in 'Watts' from the inner volume. Which is right? Case1: Modelling both the inner volume and outer volume and specifying the inner volume as source. or Case2: Modelling only the outer volume and specifying the inner surfaces as Wall with heat transfer coefficient. If it is Case1, then how could I give the source. Do I have to just divide the value in Watts by the volume of the inner volume and enter the source value in kg/m^3? If it is Case2, then is there a possiblity to calculate the heat transfer coefficient using Thermal conductivity? Waiting for your replies....... Thank you.

Option = Total Source and you enter your value in Watts. Case 2: I do not see why you need a heat transfer coefficient. First you must determined the heat flux across the interface between the inner and outer volumes. That should be imposed as a Option = Heat Flux in boundary condition. Using a heat transfer coefficient implies that the source (heat flux) is dependent of the temperature in the outer volume, is it? Hope this helps. Opaque

Then I want to put heat flux on the interface between them. Do you know how to calculate this heat flux, I had only activation energy and the thickness of the layer at the interface. And if we have the energy, can we dive it to surface area to get the flux?. Thank you in advance.

 August 16, 2007, 04:40 Re: Solid-Solid CHT Model #4 Parthipan Guest   Posts: n/a Thank you Opaque. I have decided to take the case 1. I understand that the interfaces boundary conditions are automatically assigned to the interfaces between the volumes. How should I / Should I apply the heat flux across the interface between the inner and outer volumes in CFX?

 August 21, 2007, 08:58 Re: Solid-Solid CHT Model #7 Parthipan Guest   Posts: n/a After Performing a steady state calculation, I find that the temperature is very high than expected. I did the calculation with the following settings. Output control -> Solid Timescale Control -> Physical Timescale -> 5 s I tried the calculation agian with Output control -> Solid Timescale Control -> Physical Timescale -> 0.1 s Now the Temperature is somewhat nearer to my expectation. How could I come to a conclusion with my Physical Timescale for the solid? Thank you.
