 May 26, 2013, 05:41 how to get surface temperature of pipe at cross section using iso-surface #1 New Member   abhi Join Date: Sep 2012 Posts: 11 Rep Power: 4 how to get pipe surface temperature of wall using isosurface ? for bulk temperature i created isosurface-> mesh -> then x cordinate -> tbulk temperature is 304 k but for surface temperature of wall its giving very low value 131k can anyone tell me how how to get surface temperature of pipe wall at cross section ? i am calculating local nusselt number plz tell me asap

 May 26, 2013, 17:41 #4 New Member   abhi Join Date: Sep 2012 Posts: 11 Rep Power: 4 can't i get directly surface temperature of wall at given iso-surface directly lyk bulk temp. so that it will help me to get local nusselt no. directly qflux/(ts-tb)

 May 27, 2013, 05:39 #5 Member   misagh Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 46 Rep Power: 4 no you cant get the wall temperature from bulk tempr. since it is mass-weighed average.ie. it has been integrated in the whole surface. to get the wall temperature do: plot...xy plot...axis function(temp.)...choose your favorite iso-surfaces that you created...plot you can see temperature as data points just by activing the option WRITE TO FILE. save it and then open it with notepad and the temp. at y=z=cte=radius is the wall temp. now you can use [q/delta T] for Nuselt Number.

 June 1, 2013, 19:29 regarding udf for heat flux #8 New Member   abhi Join Date: Sep 2012 Posts: 11 Rep Power: 4 bro i got answer for surface temperature we hv to creat iso surface at given section and choose wall as surface type then facet avg. of wall gives surface temperature directly now i hv another problem i hv to provide constant heat flux, only on lower semicircular area of cylinder how to do it ?

 June 2, 2013, 03:03 #9 Member   misagh Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 46 Rep Power: 4 i am not sure if any other easier way to create a semi circular with constant heat flux BC is available or not, but in your geometry you can divide the circle in two semi-circular and use the BC constant heat flux for the lower semi-circle in Gambit or any other software that created your geometry.
