Default Source term
Posts: n/a

I am developing a mathematical model for induction stirred ladle furnace. It has two part 1. Magneto Hydro Dynamics and 2. Fluid Dynamics. I have solved the first part using femlab and I have calculated lorentz forces on the conduction fluid due to the applied magentic field. These lorentz forces will make the conduction liquid to stirr . Since femlab does not support turbulence modelling in 3 D so I am using fluent for that. But in fluent I dont know how can i specify the source term which i lorentz forces in Fx, Fy and Fz on the cylindrical domain containg the conducting fluid. Please suggest if any one has any idea of how to inculde the source term in the model to sove it in fluent. I have developed the grid in gambit and Now i wish to solve the fluid part problem using the k-e turbulence modelling. Please suggest if any one has any idea regarding this.
