Water subcooled boiling

Dear CFX users,

I have troubles with boiling simulation in CFX. The main problems are that the solver crashes when vapour generates and until crash (30-40iterations) the vapour temperatures grows up to 300000 K.

I have used the default empirical terms for the boiling phenomena. The water jacket inside pressure is 6 bar, inlet temperature 85 C, wall temperature 180 degrees. Material: IAPWS water and steam, where the saturation temperature is given in tables.

Any suggestion about the used models, boundaries are welcome.

Attila

Does it work when you use constant properties water? IAWPS properties are always harder to converge.

 Attesz June 9, 2011 05:45

Thanks, I haven't tested it yet, I will give it a try.

The interesting thing is when the vapour phase appears its temperature increases up to 300000K and then it crashez. If I switch to transient simulation and adaptive time step, the solver goes to very small step size (1e-9 s) while the P-Vol residuals grows continously until crash. So the problem is with the phase change and vapour generation or maybe with the heat transfer modelling between the phases...

 ghorrocks June 9, 2011 06:52

Precisely. So to check whether the problem is in the material properties or you rmodel, run a simple constant properties model and see if it works.

 Attesz June 9, 2011 07:27

Ok, I start a new simulation with constant properties.

Otherwise I get:
+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
| An error has occurred in cfx5solve: |
| |
| The ANSYS CFX solver exited with return code 127. No results |
| file has been created. |
+--------------------------------------------------------------------+

What is the 127 code means in this case?

Thank you!

 ghorrocks June 9, 2011 08:11

No, the error codes are not documented unfortunately. But you probably missed something necessary to define the simulation in the material properties.

 Abishek January 5, 2013 04:32

you have to force the vapor phase temperature to saturation temperature to be able to use the RPI wall boiling model. hence, the solver will not run the energy equation for vapor phase..
