Hi Guys,

I am modelling a building block ( a room ) with Air inside for Natural Convection. I wonder If anyone knows how can I consider the impcat of Air humidity in the model?


Cheers,

Hi,

You need to find a database, that contains all relevant physical properties of air as a function of humidity. Then, you can put these values into fluent (Materials->Fluid->Air->....).
You will need viskosity, specific heat capacity, density, thermal conductivity and whatever your model needs.

I think you should use Species to model the humidity in the air. Knowing mass fraction of water-vapor at room and solving set of N-S equations plus an additional equation for water-vapor.
Goodluck
