Hi,

My name is Jonathan:

My question is:

I'm doing work on the modeling of the flow of water into a coil of copper tubing composed of 14cm in diameter and 90 elbows soldiers, the coil is part of a solar concentrator and the idea is to model the behavior of the fluid to Within this, taking into consideration the direct radiation and other factors such as working pressure and temperatures.

The problem is how to model the coil with CFX, desconosco the type of fluid in the interior, in relation to the type of two-phase flow and wanted to see if I can guide the solution to this problem.

So far I have the meshing of the coil and also desconosco which is the number of nodes and elements that should be meshing.

I hope you can help me in my queries, thanks.

Are you asking how to model the boiling process? CFX support has a few examples of how to model this, I would talk to them.

Indeed I want to model is the process of vaporization of soft water passing inside the coil and a phase change due to the direct radiation outside desconosco whether it will in its entirety as saturated steam or a biphasic mixture, that would tell the modeling .

So far I have the meshing of the internal volume of the coil, but I do not know the number of elements and nodes required for this event, I wish you could guide me through the steps.

In advance thank you very much.
