I have simulated problem , the base of channel is a heat transfer source ( constant ) , when i plot the total surface heat transfer flux at this section ( the base of the channel ) , its appear as a constant line exept at the end and beginning of the channel ?! i need sombody help me why this happen ??

 October 30, 2012, 01:04 #3 Member   AHMAD Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 54 Rep Power: 6 Hi, What is the type of BC you gave to the base of the channel, is it heat flux or temperature?

heat flux

 October 30, 2012, 10:30 #7 Member   AHMAD Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 54 Rep Power: 6 As the BC is heat flux, fluent will give you this result(constant heat flux), and if you want to check how the heat flux is changing along the channel base you have to use temperature as BC for the channel base.

but why there is jump in the end and the bedninig ??

 October 30, 2012, 10:42 #9 Member   AHMAD Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 54 Rep Power: 6 I dont know why fluent give this jump, but have you checked the temperature variation along the channel base, and the heat transfer coefficient. If there isnt any thing wrong so it maybe something related to the nature of the mesh you are using.

the Tem distribution is ok but the Nu number dont go to standard ( 4.3 ) , Nu go to zero ??

 November 3, 2012, 04:52 #13 Member   AHMAD Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 54 Rep Power: 6 The temperature of the channel base is decreasing, so Nu number must be increasing along the channel base, but Nu plot doesnt give you this result because of the jump of Nu number at the end of channel, so try to decrease the range of the Y-axis of the plot to see what is the real distribution of Nu number. malay likes this.

thanks for reply ...
what about Nu no didnt go to 4.32

 November 7, 2012, 12:19 #15 Member   AHMAD Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 54 Rep Power: 6 Have you checked the reference values you are using like length and temperature.

yes i have checked it ...also i try to change it but still no way ..

not yet ... do you have any idea ?

 March 14, 2013, 23:11 Success! #19 New Member   Matt Carlton Join Date: Feb 2012 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 Malay, Do you have a constant temperature value set for your inlet total temperature? If so, this may be a problem. For my inlet conditions, I imported a total temperature profile simulating a thermal boundary layer and this fixed the heat transfer spike at the inlet. Best of luck!
