hi,
i want to make a research on natural convection, for that i have to use OpenFoam.
As solver my plan is to use buoyantSimpleFoam or buoyantSimpleRadiationFoam (if you know a better solver please tell me ;-) )
My geometry is a cylinder (1m long, diameter 5cm) which has a temperature of 70°C, the room in which the the cylinder is have a temperature of 20 °C. I have the geometry edited in BlockMeshDict as 2-Dmodel, i also have the model in a 3-D model meshed by Netgen.
The geometry you can see in the picture.
I want to get by OpenFoam results for the velocity, i have measured in a test rig that the velocity is u = 0,05m/s to 0,25 m/s.

My problem now is how i can define the boundary conditions.

i donīt know which value alphat, epsilon, k, mut and omega from the buoyantSimpleFoam-tutorial should have?

or which value alphat, epsilon, G, k, and mut from the buoyantSimpleRadiationFoam-tutorial should have?

if i use the tutorials, and edit the temperature to 20°C and 70°C and the pressure to 1bar, i always get a Error message.

Can somebody help me?
thanks and greets
almir

hi
1) if u access to fluent documentation you can find how to calculate first approximation for k-epsilon
or here :
How to set up BCs for k epsilon model

2) as i remember mut and alphat can be set calculated

3 ) buoyantSimpleRadiationFoam-tutorial :

hi,
i want to make a project on openFoam. i solved cavity problem for isothermal flow now i want to go for nonisothermal problem for cavity laminar flow it means natural convection flow.so as solver what r the modification require in icoFoam solver.

My problem now is how i can define the boundary conditions.

i donīt know which value alphat, epsilon, k, mut and omega from the buoyantSimpleFoam-tutorial should have? so i m so confused

Can somebody help me?
thanks and greets

Please post your questions not in multiple topics, that is confusing:
Laminar Natural Convection
