 September 25, 2006, 13:14 temperature 1K- 5000K #1 aga Guest   Posts: n/a HI We are trying to simulate an evaporation and boiling process. Everything seems to be OK. Mass bilans is OK but the problem is with temperature. In our simulation temperature of liquid phase is OK but the temperature of vapor phase isn`t OK. At the begining of simulation temperature is 320K (set up by me), after few iteration t starts to decrease to 1K (meanwhile liquid temperature rise to 375 K - we have boiling), after few hours of calculations temperature increase to 5000K. We`ve heard that this is normal problem but how to solve it?? Some guy from Poland told me that we should change boundary conditions. I`ve tried....no resultes. Can you help us with this.

Reduce your under relaxation parameters (this is the first recommendation) but you ought to give more about your simulation, what solver are you using, is it a unsteady simulation, etc Good Luck

Iteration time steps=0,0005s. Are you able to tell me more now????
