 December 30, 2013, 04:09 determine surface height without input (open channel ; free surface and bottom) given #1 New Member   stefanus tobing Join Date: Oct 2013 Posts: 19 Rep Power: 3 hi all, happy welcome the new year, I really need your help, i hve tried this with open channel, i think it's not proper way, because i set the height of the surface, but in my case, i should make the water can adapt surface height by gravity work on it without input given (without entering data in open channel ; free surface and bottom), then the water free out like a waterfall into the tank. please, help me. thank you so much surface vortex3.jpg Stefanus Tobing

 December 30, 2013, 08:48 #6 New Member   stefanus tobing Join Date: Oct 2013 Posts: 19 Rep Power: 3 what first stage is mean? sorry, i can't understand. please, explain to me. i'm new inthis field it's my work, but still divergence, after set the BC as your suggest. Transient with VOF + open channel, BC, Volocity inlet : 1,4 m/s and Pressure outlet (default), then compute from velocity inlet, then calculate with 200 iteration. mesh.jpg

 December 30, 2013, 10:20 #7 Senior Member   Join Date: Jan 2010 Location: Germany Posts: 268 Rep Power: 8 I only suggested to USE VOF since you said that open channel flow is not quite giving the right results. You have to check the whole setup and five us more details. By the way why did you start with the open channel hydraulics? Do you have experimental values for the heights of waves at inlet and outlet?. Your Geometry looks like a cyclone. And the mesh is very coarse. I suggest to start with tutorial or simple duct and carry on a VOF simulation of free surface flow. stefenbink likes this.

 December 31, 2013, 19:52 #13 New Member   stefanus tobing Join Date: Oct 2013 Posts: 19 Rep Power: 3 hi, Zaktatir i did as ur suggest to start it with simple duct, i hve made a tub with a duct on it in 2D, and it work but i got problem, the case, I want to fill the tub until it is full with water in 2D. I use time step size low = 0,1; number of time step = 100; auto save every(time step) = 10 i need time until 60 s, until the tub is full but in interation (before the tub is full) i got error message in 2 s, . the tub is not full yet what things should i change? ps: error "Global courant number is greater than 250.00 The velocity field is probably diverging. Please check the solution and reduce the time-step if necessary." thanks alot, if you can help me, this now. happy new year Attachment 27667
