computing Nusselt number in a cavity
Hello gentlemen,
I was working on fluent to compute the heat transfer analysis in a differentially heated cavity regarding I have few doubts . The model is a basically 2d with temp gradient along two sides and adiabatic boundary on the other two sides with air as the fluid enclosed in it . 1. While doing the analysis is there any neccesity to give a convective boundary condition at nay of the faces ,if yes how ? 2.How to compute the mean nusselt number for the cavity (Is the method of using the surface integrals correct or some better method maybe employes so that we get a correct value to taht obtained by any other value reported in the literature ) thanking you regards Shoaib |

computing Nusselt number in a cavityHi all!
My study is related with 2D natural convection in a square cavity.I change the location and length of the heat sink-sourse pairs to see flow structure in cavity.I solved in Fluent program, but I dont know where can I obtain surface Nu and average Nu numbers.Is there any command to calculate average and local Nu number in Fluent. |
