 April 1, 2011, 12:51 integral over time #1 New Member   Duarte Join Date: Aug 2010 Location: Recife - Brasil Posts: 3 Rep Power: 8 I wish to calculate a quantity which is the result of the value obtained by a expression, at the present time with the value of that expression in time earlier. How can I do this in CFX?

There is a trick using Additional Variables that can make that work, but it's a hidden feature and won't work in all cases. Search this forum for "Update Loop = TRANS_LOOP" to find that info.

 June 14, 2011, 13:13 Integral over time #4 New Member   Duarte Join Date: Aug 2010 Location: Recife - Brasil Posts: 3 Rep Power: 8 stumpy,Thanks for your tip! Using your suggestion I was able to calculate the integral over time for an expression that is a function of time. This integral represents the thermal damage caused to the biological tissue. Now, I need to change the values ​​of density, thermal conductivity and specific heat of cells whose thermal damage (integral over time) reached a certain value. Can I do this in function of thermal damage in ANSYS CFX-? How can I do this? . Thanks. J.Duarte Last edited by joseduartedasilva; June 14, 2011 at 13:29.

I assume this is a solid domain? If so, I don't think you can make Density variable (well, perhaps you can make it variable, but I'm not sure it will give the correct result). Perhaps you can change Cp instead of Density - if you only care about the thermal capacitance in the end, then adjust Cp to produce the same change in thermal capacitance as the change in density would have produced.
