Hi
It is easy to define the temperature variation vs a distance by using a function in CFX-Pre.

Hi,
If you need documentation about CFX-Pre Function you can find it in the CFX Help. You can see also tutorial 19 Air Conditioning Simulation (CFX 13).

Dear Abou Ali
In fact I read the mentioned tutorial, but in that example show using the functions in CFX but has not explain how can write a function. Do you know how can I write a function to show for example a linear temperature profile ?

Sincerely

The units of T and x are K and m respectively

Procedure
1- From the main menu, select Insert > Expressions, Functions and Variables >

2- In the New Function dialog box, type Tempx.
3- Click OK.
The details view for the Tempx function is displayed.
4- In the Argument Units box type [m]
5- In the Result Units box type [K]
6- Set Option to One Dimensional
7- In the Coordinate box type x1
8- In the Value box type T1
9- Click Add
10- Repeat steps 7 to 9 to add x2,T2 and x3,T3.
11-Click OK
*****************
From the main menu, select Insert > Expressions, Functions and Variables >
Expression.

2. In the New Expression dialog box, type Tx.
3. Click OK.
The details view for the Tupper equation is displayed.
