Hi,

I just downloaded 1.5; nice work and thanks a lot! Though I wonder, if there is a tutorial case for the new cht solver? I could not find.

Small overview ;-)

Attached a simple testcase. Do not run blockMesh, just chtMultiRegionFoam.

Mesh was too big for the forum to upload. I put together a simple blockMesh case. Check the Allrun script on how to run it. Haven't checked the output so please let me know if there are any problems with it.

Hi Mattijs,

thanks, it's running, when typing the Allrun script line by line. I couldn't check the output yet, due to the qt-paraview depence (still have the old qt); using 'foamToVTK' with cellSet I was not successful.. I.e. there is just a mesh in the created vtk files. There is probably some other option to get the results!?

Hi!
I'm not sure, whether I'm right here.
I want to use a solver with conjugate heat transfer for an incompressible fluid; but the cht-solver is for compressible flow, isn't it?

I've worked with the conjugateHeatFoam Solver in 1.4.1-dev; but I can't find it in 1.5

Any hints?
Thank you.

Jens

Dear Jens,

the content of the -dev tree is not included in the OpenCFD released version.

Dear Fabian,

I had your same problem in using standard parafoam utility, but I have found a way to use VTK: in first time step the mesh of every region is stored. If you copy all that meshes in

constant/[RegionName]/polyMesh

and then run many times the assignment

foamToVTK -region [RegionName]

(one time for each region) you should be able to open five different meshes in any version of paraview. Probably better ways exist but it works

Regards

Andrea

Hi,

I am trying to run the chtRegionHeater with the case above according the steps listed in Allrun. Unfortunately, at the step "splitMeshRegions -cellZones" I get a long error message as below. It happens under Suse10.3 and Ubuntun 8.04 too. Could anyone please take a look? I appreciate for any hint.

Regards,

Bitan Shu

dear all!!

i run the multiRegionHeater tutorial case; the calculation finishes successfully. the problem i face now is the visualization. when opening the case with paraFoam i can import all the regions/meshes (left/rightsSolid, heater, top/bottomAir) stored in the VTK directory, but cannot display any quantity. No physical quantity can be chosen on "Vol Field Status" of multiRegionHeater.OpenFOAM. the property menu of the different regions is empty and no quantity can be chosen from the "color by" tab.

does anybody have an idea? appreciate any comment!

thx in advance!

Hi all,

When running the tutorial provided with chtMultiregionFoam, the temperature is not affected by the velocity. I increased the inlet velocity to 0.1, but the temperature field does not change. Although the velocity is calculated correctly, the temperature seems to be affected by conduction only, as shown in the picture.



Any help is appreciated.

Sylvester

hi!!

i m about to study and modify the multiRegionHeater tutorial case. there i get some results which seem not to be realistic; e.g. is the range of density roh in the fluid region (air) calculated with [9.30455, 13.0787] kg/m^3.

@Sylvester: have you made further experience with the chtMultiRegionFoam solver?

appreciate any comment!! thanks in advance!

hi all!!

dissolved my confusion concerning the density (one should have a better look on the BCs!!); it was calculated correctly as the pressure p (specified in system/topAir/changeDictionaryDict) was set to 1000000 Pa (= 10 bar, instead of the expected 1 bar).

Furthermore did I have a look on the BCs coupling the T-field of fluid and solid regions. I would like to pose a question: why is the flux not divided by the patch surface for the calculation of the gradient (see solidWallHeatFluxTemperatureCoupledFvPatchScalarFi eld.C), as the flux, calculated in solidWallTemperatureCoupledFvPatchScalarField.C is determined in the units of Watt?

_solidWallHeatFluxTemperatureCoupledFvPatchScalarF ield.C:

gradient() = refCast<const>(neighbourField).flux()/K;

_solidWallTemperatureCoupledFvPatchScalarField.C:

Foam::tmp<foam::scalarfield>
Foam::solidWallTemperatureCoupledFvPatchScalarFiel d::flux() const
{
const fvPatchScalarField& Kw =
patch().lookupPatchField<volscalarfield,>(KName_);

const fvPatchScalarField& Tw = *this;

return Tw.snGrad()*patch().magSf()*Kw;
}

thx in advance for any comments!!

Dear All,

I have a problem, impressing a finer meshRegion on top of the left&right Solid in the multiRegionHeater. I already managed to refine the hole topAir region by applying refineMesh on the cellSet.
My next idea was to create a layer cellSet fineMesh:
cellSet topAir new boxToCell (-100 0.02 -100 )(100 100 100)
cellSet fineMesh new boxToCell (-100 0.01 -100 )(100 0.02 100)
cellSet fineMesh delete cellToCell topAir
), refine this area and restart chtMultiregionFoam.
But there are further Problems coming up with this Idea:
1. spliting the fluidregion creates a fluid-fluid Interface --> what kind of BC do i have to set?
2. stitchMesh does not work:

stitchMesh fineMesh_to_topAir topAir_to_fineMes
**********************

// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //
Create time

Create mesh for time = 0.001

Coupling patches fineMesh_to_topAir and topAir_to_fineMesh
Resulting (internal) faces will be in faceZone fineMesh_to_topAirtopAir_to_fineMeshCutFaceZone

Note: the overall area covered by both patches should be identical ("integral" interface).
If this is not the case use the -partial option



Cannot find patch fineMesh_to_topAir
It should be present and of non-zero size
Valid patches are
6
(
maxY
minX
maxX
minY
minZ
maxZ
)
**********************
3. using refineMesh in combination with subsetMesh makes the other cellZones inaccessible for setsToZones and splitMeshRegions

Did I miss a command or how can I remerge the two regions topAir and fineMesh?

Any Ideas?

THX Tobias
