 August 8, 2005, 04:00 help in galvanising sheet problem #1 MANOJ Guest   Posts: n/a hellow, i have constructed a cubical furnace of 300mm in dimension. inside it a thin sheet is kept. i have given the velocity inlet boundary condition at the sheet inlet and outflow condition at the sheetoutlet. the four sides of the sheet are given the boundary condition of wall.the fluid used is water. if i take sheet as solid than the solution doesnot converge. so i have taken sheet as fluid. please help me to solve the problem by taking the sheet as solid.i also want your suggestion whether the sheet treated as fluid is correct or not. thanks a lot.

 August 9, 2005, 02:32 Re: help in galvanising sheet problem #4 MANOJ Guest   Posts: n/a hi swarup, i have tried moving mesh problem by taking the sheet as solid but error comes telling that FLUENT received fatal signal. so i could not proceed further.please tell your suggestion about solving this problem.thanks a lot. manoj

Swarup.

If e.g. you have a moving sheet, and you need to account for the heat-transfer due to the 'solid convection' with the sheet, you can create a thin fluid zone as being the sheet. In this zone you have an inlet-velocity = sheet velocity, a free outlet, and two or four walls wich will be moving walls with, of course, the sheet velocity. As a result you have no relative motion in this sheet-fluid-zone, and if you set this zone as 'laminar zone' and give the fluid 'metal' material a very high viscosity (not necessary, but just to be onthe safe side), this zone actually behaves as a solid, but with that difference taht even in a stationary calculation the convection of heat is being calculated. The effects of the movement on the real fluid is easily taken into account by the moving wall boundaries. This procedure can save huge amounts of time. someone any comments? cheers, Laika, still orbiting

 August 13, 2005, 09:20 Re: help in galvanising sheet problem #8 Laika Guest   Posts: n/a your "frozen fluid region" that is your sheet, is separated from the fluid zone by a wall and it's shadow. The temerature boundary condition for these two walls need to be 'coupled'. Is that the case in your simulation? What temperature would you expect? What values for the heat transfer coefficient would you axpect. Are temperatures in the fluid zone ok? good luck, Laika, still orbiting

 August 22, 2005, 02:29 Re: help in galvanising sheet problem #9 MANOJ Guest   Posts: n/a I getting same temperature in all zones of moving sheet in each side-1,side-2 side-3,ide-4 and inlet and outlet temp is also same. if u want whole detail about my problem i send u by mail if u give u e-mail id my mail manojprasad79@yahoo.co.in thanking u manoj
