 July 21, 2012, 00:07 Question about thermophysical models? #1 Member     Luis Felipe Gutierrez Marcantoni Join Date: Oct 2010 Location: Cordoba-Argentina Posts: 46 Rep Power: 6 Hi, I have a question about thermophysical models, I understand that if i.e, the energy variable is enthalpy F=h(T) and dF/dT=Cp(T), in: Code: `src/thermophysicalModels/specie/lnInclude/specieThermoI.H` my question is where it is defined in the code, that F and dF/dt take these variables as arguments. I understand also that the energy variable is selected by the thermo model. I.e, if is selected Code: `eConstThermo` the energy variable is the internal energy, but I can find in the code where is defined F=e(t). Pd: I have a basic knowledge of C++ Thanks in advance for any hint, Fg. __________________ Felipe G

Best Regards, Christian

 July 26, 2012, 03:57 basicThermo class question #3 New Member   Daniel Jasiński Join Date: Sep 2011 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 Hi I was browsing through basicThermo class an found that this class returns null field when requested for enthalpy. If understand it correctly this is a dummy enthalpy, that is not connected with temperature field. Could someone explain this to me?
