Hello!

My name is Tobias and I have a strange problem. I made a model of a duct with simple obstacles. fluid is iawps steam table. Boundary condition is static pressure@ outlet, mass flow rate with direction an total temperature @ inlet. the inlet is quite long with free slip walls and no significant change in the flow is estimated. Now, if I change the inlet temperature (increase 200K), the first node inside the model is not affected and there is a unphysical drop of temperature within the first cell. the residuals become very low anyway. the mesh is quite coarse at the inlet but i think that the boundary should not be affected. aspect ratio is ok and angle, too.

I do not know why the solver "ignores" my new inlet temperature.

Thank you very much for any idea.

The problem seems to be the steam table. If I choose another one built by myself with taskflow, everything is fine.

Hi,

The IAPWS database makes convergence a bit trickier. Are you sure your table values are OK? Check you have not gone over the limits (min/max temperature, pressure etc) you have defined for you properties table. You might also need to put a few extra points in.
