 August 5, 2013, 08:22 QUICK QUESTION: How it comes !!! #1 New Member   Mfm Join Date: Jun 2013 Posts: 18 Rep Power: 5 Hi all , Something weird was going on fluent. I have been simulating heat exchanger (tube bank) problem. When setting the B.C's I set the temperature of the cylinders to 343.15 but after iterating to some residual when doing surface integral to the cylinder to just check the temperature THE TEMPRATURE OF THE CYLINDERS WAS NOT AS I SET AS A BOUNDARY CONDITION !!!!! please reply if you know the solution I thought that maybe there are not enough nodes on the surface of the cylinders but as I increased the nodes the difference still huge (like 25c)

Hi
I tried to do a sanpshot of all thing. All the residuals are belowe 10-7 and still the specified bounddary condition doesnt match with the computed one
