Heat Transfer Coefficient in Compressible Flow 3D turbine cascadeHi,
I am using CFX to model a 3D turbine cascade. My ultimate objective is to compute the heat transfer coefficient distribution at the blade surface. The flow is subsonic compressible so I am using "Total Energy" and "Air Ideal Gas" for the working fluid. CFD Post outputs data for two particular variables. The "wall heat flux (q) " and the "wall heat transfer coefficient (h) ". From the CFX manual, I understand that these two are related by: h = q / (T_wall - T_adjacentwall) These values are very high and not in agreement with experimental data. I tried to compute the wall heat flux myself by using the following: q = -k * (Twall - Tadjacent wall) / y where k is the thermal diffusivity Twall is the wall temperature (which I had specified as a boundary condition) Tadjacent wall is the temperature of the first node away from the wall. and y is the distance of the first node away from the wall to the wall itself (this value I defined when I was creating the O-grid mesh around the airfoil in ICEM CFD) Still I see that the variable are underpredicted compared to experimental data and the trend of heat transfer distribution with streamwise direction on the blade surface is not smooth and fluctuating. I would appreciate any comments and knowledge you can share about computing the heat transfer coefficient in compressible flow. Thank you so in advance. |
