 July 12, 2005, 18:02 Transonic Heat Transfer #1 Ejaz Ahmed Guest   Posts: n/a Hello I am solving a transonic heat transfer problem in concentric pipe heat exchanger. Hot air entering in the inner pipe are at 500m/s at 1173 Kelvin and their Mach # is 0.7283. Gases are leaving into the atmosphere. I can apply two boundary conditions at the inlet as fluent manuals guides me. Mass flow inlet or Pressure inlet. But in both Boundary condition i need to specify the Static pressure at the inlet, which i don't have. Is there any genius who can help me in making the initial guess for static pressure. I am also facing a problem in achieving balance of continuity equation. What could be the REASONS ? With Regards Ejaz Ahmed

But if you consider it then you have to be very careful about static pressure otherwise it always gives some problem in the continuity equation. good luck

That means the program calculates the initial velocity field using ecuation: ptot/pstat=(1+(k-1)/2*M^2)^(k/(k-1)) where k=1.4, M= Mach number. So if you know the Mach number, then you can easily calculate coresponding static pressure. Best whishes, Razvan

Neither i have static or total pressure at the inlet. Now i cannot apply mass or pressure inlet boundary condition. Is there any possiblity to solve this problem having the given data. I am looking to trace the pressure mean while with regards Ejaz Ahmed
