cfd.geek is on a distinguished road
I am doing a project on simulation of heating of a pipe by induction heating. As such, the I have to model the effect of induction coil placed around the pipe, given specific power input and frequency.
My final goal is to find the temperature distribution in pipe when the coil is moved along the pipe's length at specific speed (very low 2-4 mm/min)
The parameter's I know are-
1. The power input
2. Frequency
3. Speed of movement
How should I start off? I found that the origin of induction heating is a volumetric heat generation rate, so I ll have to write a UDF for the pipe's volume. However, how can figure out the heat generation rate in time and space?
