 March 31, 2007, 16:26 Total and static temperature #1 jak Guest   Posts: n/a I have modeled a heated isothermal cylinder in natural convection and for some reason the total tmeperature is lower than the static temperature how is this possible?

 April 1, 2007, 01:08 Re: Total and static temperature #2 Mahesh Guest   Posts: n/a What kind of solver are u using. You must check the values of density or specific heat. Sonce its a convection problem, i think you are having a variable density, i guess the density values are going negetive during iterations. If this is the problem, you can enforce a bound on density values to be more than zero. Hope this helped Mahesh.R

 April 18, 2007, 00:55 High Temperature variation #7 priya Guest   Posts: n/a My maximum temp at the inlet of a valve is 545C and the flow is adiabatic flow.I need a temperature downfall but during analysis it takes 545c as the min temp and i hav a high temp variation.I am getting resonable pressure values but high temp variation. Its a sonic flow inlet Static pr: 181.428 bar Static temp:545c outlet: normal speed: 654m/s
