Hi,

I am modelling Critical Heat Flux with the RPI-CHF model.

I ran the simulation first of all steady since the results (exp.) turn to be steady.

Now I tried to run it in unsteady manner, however till know in vain.

From increasing/decreasing the time step till using the result of the steady solution did not help.

I am now investigation how much does the steady solver dampens the instabilities in a simulation.

have you noticed somethink like this? The results of the steady solver are compared to exp and showed good agreement (Temperatures/Heat Fluxes and Void are very good)

Thanks

hello,Zaktatir
i tried to modelling Critical Heat Flux with the CHF model months ago,and I have some questions about it,that is the critical heat flux model in fluent 14.0,and I tried to do the test case of the CHF model,and I created the physical model of Hoyer,and I set up of this case ,but the result of the calculation is always diverge, and the wall temperature soaring situation does not appear,the highest value of vapor volume fraction is just 0.72. I have tried two months to solve this issue and I’m failed,so will you give me some advises of this problem?thanks
