Default Oil Evaporation
Posts: n/a
Hi all, im trying to model an oil evaporating from a surface at a rate of 1.625e-5 kg/s. Does anyone know of any tutorials or are able to offer any advice on how to do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks TC

Hi TC,

Is this due to heating the surface or airflow over it?

Hi Joel, the evaporation is predominately caused by heating of the surface. However there will be some evaporation caused by a relatively high velocity across the surface as well.
