non-uniform inlet velocity simulation in Fluent 13.0
The performance of propeller is computing in Fluent 13.0. The inlet velocity which is non-uniform inflow was given using UDF in fluent. When I use turbulence model to simulate, the inlet velocity dissipated quickly (The plane close to the inlet whose velocity like the uniform). When I use Laminar or Inviscid model to simulate, there is no dissipation (the outlet velocity is similar to the inlet velocity)
Can someone give me a hint on how to do that ?
Thanks for your help !
"The inlet velocity which is non-uniform inflow was given using UDF in fluent."
for this you should compile a UDF to impose a velocity profile through the inlet. or you need to use points!
For UDF you need to fit a polyline to the inlet profile velocity and then impose this polyline.
here is an example of the velocity profile UDF:
the red equation is the mentioned polyline.
Thanks and sorry for my poor English.
In my case, I give the UDF in fluent and the inlet velocity shows from the velocity contours which seems to be no problem.
I use Inviscid and Laminar model (Viscous model) to simulate,the velocity of the sections parallel to the inlet are similar to the inlet velocity(the inlet velocity are non-uniform). But when i change viscous model to two equation turbulence model (SST , RNG)，the velocity of the sections parallel to the inlet which are fully uniform(the dissipation are very quick).
