Moving workpiece instead of Heat source Problem
I'm facing a strange problem...I'm solving the equation below
dT/dt - v* dT/dx - (k/rho*Cp) (d2T/dx2+d2T/dy2+d2T/dz2) =0
v= welding speed
My intention is to instead of moving the heat source I want to move the work piece itself.
In OpenFOAM, I have modelled the equation like this:
volVectorField gradT = fvc::grad(T);
volScalarField dtdx = gradT.component(0);
fvm::ddt(T) - fvm::laplacian(DT, T) - VX*dtdx
For declaration of VX I have tried following both ways:
2. volVectorField and then taking X component of the velocity (VX)
But the problem is that, solution is acting like a fixed heat source...it's not moving....
Anyone can give me idea to work out this .....Thnx in advance
Why are you multiplying the dT/dx term by a field? Does the welding speed vary with location? It seems that a dimensionedScalar would work if the welding speed in constant across the entire system (though not necessarily constant in time).
