You can use a UDF with a interpolation function in which your experimental data is included or read.

Any ideas to build this C file? (name.C)

Like that?

4.3.7 DEFINE HEAT FLUX Description In spite of its name, the DEFINE HEAT FLUX macro is not to be used to explicitly set the heat ux along a wall. FLUENT computes the heat ux along a wall based on currently selected models to account for the di usive and radiative energy uxes (if any). You must only use a DEFINE HEAT FLUX UDF when you want to employ some other heat transfer mechanism that is not currently being modeled. The total heat ux at the wall will be the sum of the currently computed heat ux (based on the activated models) and the heat ux de ned by the UDF. Usage Macro: DEFINE HEAT FLUX (name, f, t, c0, t0, cid, cir) Argument types: face t f Thread *t cell t c0 Thread *t0 real cid[] real cir[] Function returns: void There are seven arguments to DEFINE HEAT FLUX: name, f, t, c0, t0, cid, and cir. You will supply name, the name of the UDF. f, t, c0, t0, cir[], and cid[] are variables that are passed by the FLUENT solver to your UDF. The passed variable, f, is an index that identi es a wall face within the given thread. t is a pointer to the thread on which the heat ux function is to be applied. c0 is an index that identi es the cell next to the wall, and t0 is a pointer to the adjacent cell's thread. cid[] and cir[] are real arrays that need to be computed by your UDF. Array cid[] stores the uid-side di usive heat transfer coecients, while array cir[] stores radiative heat transfer coecients. With these inputs provided to the function, the di usive heat

ux (qid) and radiative heat ux (qir) are computed by FLUENT according to the following equations: qid = cid[0] + cid[1]*C_T(c0,t0) - cid[2]*F_T(f,t) - cid[3]*pow(F_T(f,t),4) qir = cir[0] + cir[1]*C_T(c0,t0) - cir[2]*F_T(f,t) - cir[3]*pow(F_T(f,t),4) The sum of qid and qir de nes the total heat ux from the uid to the wall (this direction being positive ux), and, from an energy balance at the wall, equals the heat 4-32 c Fluent Inc. January 22, 2003 4.3 Model-Speci c DEFINE Macros

ux of the surroundings (exterior to the domain). Note that heat ux UDFs (de ned using DEFINE HEAT FLUX) are called by FLUENT from within a loop over wall faces. In order for the solver to compute C T and F T, the values you supply to cid[1] and ! cid[2] should never be zero. Example Section 11.5.2 provides an example of the P-1 radiation model implementation through a user-de ned scalar. An example of the usage of the DEFINE HEAT FLUX macro is included in that implementation. Hooking a Heat Flux UDF to FLUENT After the UDF that you have de ned using DEFINE HEAT FLUX is interpreted or compiled (see Chapter 7 for details), the name that you speci ed in the DEFINE macro argument will become visible in the User-De ned Function Hooks panel in FLUENT. See Section 8.2.7 for details on how to hook your DEFINE HEAT FLUX UDF to FLUENT.

John, thank you very much for helping me.

Try this link (tutorials of CFX, ICEM CFD, and Fluent 6.1. Fluent 6.1 includes meshes, PDF files, and much more):

http://www.4shared.com/dir/8279926/7..._ICEM_etc.html

John, i have a doubt.

Is x[36] the x component velocity or time in seconds?

real x[36]={0.0,0.01395,0.0279,0.0391,0.1313,0.1564,0.1788,0 .1927,0.2067,0.2207,0.2318,0.2486,0.2626,0.2821,0. 3184,0.352,0.3827,0.4106,0.4469,0.4665,0.4804,0.49 72,0.5168,0.5447,0.5698,0.6034,0.6341,0.676,0.7263 ,0.7682,0.7933,0.8296,0.8687,0.9106,0.9525,1.0};

Is y[36] the x component velocity applied at inlet?

real y[36]={3.0,4.66925,9.3385,28.0156,210.1167,272.3735,348 .6381,404.6693,445.1362,463.8132,473.1518,473.1518 ,459.144,423.3463,365.7588,303.5019,236.5759,166.5 37,99.6109,68.4825,49.8054,40.4669,48.249,76.2646, 99.6109,118.2879,136.965,149.4163,143.1907,130.739 3,105.8366,73.1518,48.249,23.3463,9.3385,3.0};

Thank you,Rogerio. x[36] is time in seconds, y[36] is the corresponding velocity.

Could y[36) be a heat flux in [W m^-2] ?

Can I use the DEFINE_PROFILE(unst_F_inlet,thread,position) macro to impose my heat flux varying in the time?

My geometry is a solid domain and iīm imposing a heat flux as a boundary conidition, and not as an inlet boundary condition.

Thanks again!

No problem, you can use DEFINE_PROFILE to define your boundary conditon.

Hi John,

I tried compiling the file.C, but it appeared an error. When I interpreted the code.c, the compiler didnīt find the b_spline_f function. Do you know how to solve this problem?

Any ideas to help me?

Thanks.

That's right. The file.c cannot run directly even as the annotation in C file: "/*This is the interplation function. You should write it additionally*/". The interplation function isnot pivotal issue. I think that you should selelct any appropriate piecewise interpolations to your problem. Certainly, if you want, I will paste mine in here for you.

Hi ,

If i use an equation, will it be like showed below?

/************************************************** ******************** unsteady.c UDF for specifying a transient velocity profile boundary condition ************************************************** *********************/ #include "udf.h" DEFINE_PROFILE(unsteady_velocity, thread, position) { face_t f; real t = CURRENT_TIME; begin_f_loop(f, thread) { F_PROFILE(f, thread, position) = 20. + 5.0*sin(10.*t); } end_f_loop(f, thread) } c Fluent Inc.

Yes. You should only alter the equation to yours.
