sensitivity analysis
 
Hello everyone! My Fluent base-case dealing with coal combustion has reached convergence. Now I would like to make sensitivity analysis: I have to vary the primary air flow rate in order to analyse the effect on combustion process. I don't know if I have to reinitialise the solution every time I change the mass flow rate or if I can start the calculation from my base case. Thanks for your help! By Silvia

Re: sensitivity analysis
 
If your boundary conditions dont vary too much its always a good idea to use an existing solution as starting point for a new calculation. Change the air mass flow rate an continue the calculation.
