equivalence ratio calculation on star-cd cellHello,
Can you please help me in equivalence ratio calculation over computational domain. the fuel is -> C8H18. my main problem is how to calculate the c8h18 for each cell over domain.:o Thanks in advance. regards, Krishna |

please try this macro, bless.

Thank you very much..
Can you please explain the below points: 1. why u are multiplying oxygen with 4.291845494. this is how cell data stored { CELL DATA SU "Velocity Component U" m/s SV "Velocity Component V" m/s SW "Velocity Component W" m/s MassFlux "Mass Flux" kg/s P "Pressure" Pa PTER "Thermo. Pressure" Pa TE "Turb Kinetic Energy" m2/s2 ED "Dissipation Rate" m2/s3 VIS "Turbulent Viscosity" Pa s T "Temperature" K H "Enthalpy" J/kg DENS "Density" kg/m3 CP_M "Mean Specific Heat" J/kgK CP "Specific Heat" J/kgK COND "Conductivity" W/mK CONC_001 "C8H18" CONC_002 "N2" CONC_003 "O2" CONC_004 "WFMASS" CONC_005 "WFTHICK" CONC_006 "WFTEMP" CONC_007 "RG" VOID "Void Fraction" } 2. please check the above commands once. operate,getc,conc,2,2 !the mass fraction of oxygen-- now i have to run it as a operate,getc,conc,2,3 !the mass fraction of oxygen--can you please conform this. Thanks in advance.:) |

Q1. why u are multiplying oxygen with 4.291845494.
answer: 4.291845494=1/0.233, multiplying oxygen with this value, you can get the mass fraction of air. Q2. please check the above commands once. operate,getc,conc,2,2 !the mass fraction of oxygen-- now i have to run it as a operate,getc,conc,2,3 !the mass fraction of oxygen--Answer: It is all right that you made a small modification as "operatre,getc,conc,2,3",due to the last number stands for "species number", and second to last number represents "register number". --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- operate GETC CONC,IREGS,NSC(1) ==Loads the mass fractions of scalar species NSC into register IREGS. CONC_001 "C8H18" CONC_002 "N2" CONC_003 "O2" |

thank you so much ...
i have checked the operate command like.. operate,getc,conc,2,3 here 2 is the register and 3 is the conc value. Thank you ...:):):):):):):):) |
