hi everyone,

can any one help me with establishing the following profile through out a reactor domain, reactor length = 157cm T1 = 900 - 1400k l = 0 to 16 cm T2 = 1400k l = 16 to 44 cm T3 = 1400 - 700k l = 44 to 60 cm T4 = 700k l = 60 to 157 cm i have tried some methods but wouldn't work, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance for the help. sivakumar

Hello,

what exactly do you want? Is this a piece-wise 1D temperature profile inside your reactor? Is this a wall temperature?

You can patch in your temperatures in separate fluid zones defined to match the profile range you previously described. Then turn off the solution of the energy equation.

I agree, that's the way to do it.
