 March 30, 2002, 19:35 Adiabatic condition at inlet #1 Murthy Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, This may look strange but I want to model an adiabatic inlet condition.The boundary type is velocity inlet and I am trying set the inlet as adiabatic.Any suggestion help would be of great help. Thanks in advance Murthy

 March 31, 2002, 08:42 Re: Adiabatic condition at inlet #2 chiseung Guest   Posts: n/a How about using the "interpolate" in solver. By solving the momentum equation and energy equation separately, you can give the adiabatic boundary condition at your inlet. P.S. If the energy trasport in your system is strongly affected by flow field, above treatment would be improper.

 March 31, 2002, 21:20 Re: Adiabatic condition at inlet #4 chiseung Guest   Posts: n/a The function "Interpolate" can export your field variables(velocity, scalar, pressure, k value, epsilon value. etc.) as a file. This "interpolate" function is used frequently when field initialization is required. Compared to "profile" file, this is used in whole computational domain or part of volume you have designated. Though I just recommended the "interpolate" function, I'm not sure that the use of "interpolate" is proper to your system. The reason is I don't know your system exactly.

I was thinking if it were possible to implement the same using UDF's.I tried the same but at the face the gradient of temperature cannot exist hence ,I want to get some more ideas regarding implementing this using UDF and UDS and thanks for the reply.

(1) Set the solver to solve only momentum equation with the option "energy" is turned on(besides, turn down energy equation in "solve->control" menu). (2) Solve the momentum equation with above solver settings. (3) If the solutions are converged, change your inlet boundary type to "wall" boundary in boundary condition panel and give the adiabatic b.c. at the changed inlet boundary. (4) Turn on flow equation and turbulence(if you solve this) and turn down energy equation in "solve->control" menu). This is, I think, numerically describing your question but I'm not sure this is physically meaningful. It's up to you.

 April 2, 2002, 13:42 Re: Adiabatic condition at inlet #7 Robin Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Murthy, Just what do you mean by adiabatic? Your inlet should be advecting fluid at some temperature, are you saying you do not want to specify the temperature at your inlet? Robin
