 November 3, 2011, 15:16 Density of fluid with respect to temperature and pressure #1 New Member   Akash Join Date: Sep 2011 Posts: 12 Rep Power: 7 Hi All, I not able to find how to input material property for the fluid(diesel) with respect to temperature and pressure. I have complete data that is pressure range 0 to 2000 bar and temperature range 0 to 200 degree Celcius. Do i need to write a expression to it or any way i can just feed the excel data into the CFX where in it produces the graph and uses the same. Similarly I need to give cavitation saturation pressure with respect to temperature. If this is done then i can run my model with thermal conditions first and then the cavitation model to find the effect of thermal effects on cavitation. I need to check out with raise in temperature how much the cavitation raises as the fluid passes through different orifice. I need to also give specific heat capacity with respect to temperature and also the dynamic viscosity with respect to temperature. I am using thermal energy with inlet as total pressure and temperature and outlet as static pressure. Wall being the adabatic. Kindly help me out resolving this issue. Best Regards Akash A V

There's no built-in bi-linear interpolation in CFX-Pre, so yes, you need to come up with an expression that describes the density as a function of (T,p). I don't think Excel can curve fit a bi-linear function, but it would be nice if it could (and please tell me how to do it!). Anybody know of any software that can do that curve fit?

I would request to kindly send me formulae for density variation with respect to temperature and pressure separately. (Density with repect to temp)( Density with repect to temp) So that I will assign them individually and check how much is the variation. Please let me know the CEL function for above mentioned variations. Thanks in Advance Regard Akash A V
