fluent define limiting time
please give me your suggestion about how to set fluent simulation for limiting time. for example
I have model as shown upper figure.
fluid inlet: 1.8 m/s, 588 k
fin that is surrounded by fluid: 273 k teperature
the fluid will transfer the heat to the fin.
I'd like to use CFD postprocessing(temperature contour) after 20 second.
please help me
Can I set time to Transient on General settings and set the Run calculation as following:
Time step size(s)=1
number of time steps= 20
max Iterations/TIme step= 10
Could anyone give me your suggestion that it is correct or not? please
Your approach is correct. The final time of the simulation will be:
Where N is the number of time steps and is the time step size.
Typically, having a transient simulation converge (per time step) in 5-7 iterations is reasonably good, thus having a setting of a maximum of 10 iterations per time step is OK. However, in your case I would be concerned about the size of the time step -- ensure that the simulation is actually converging after 10 iterations, not simply marching to the next time step because of the maximum iteration count you've imposed.
