 September 2, 2017, 04:24 Inside pipe wall temperature rise time t=? #1 New Member   tibor Join Date: Aug 2016 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 9 At time t=0 both the inside and outside temperature of pipe is at 21.1 degc (no fluids inside the pipe). At time t=? , fluid flows inside the pipe carrying 427 deg c at velocity V. My question is during the contact of fluid to inside wall pipe, will the inside wall temperature of the pipe will abruptly change from 21.2 deg C to 427 deg C ) Say at 1 sec? Or is it gradual say 60 sec? Can we run CFD to obtain this rise time inside the wall of pipe temperature? In case can run, what are data needed ,etc.? Thanks a lot in advance .. Or

Could you keep it simple and start with the pipe full of fluid? Set initial conditions to all volumes and run transiently, shouldn't take long

Do you know some work around to estimate the heat transfer coefficient W/m^2-K of an incoming fluid at say 427 deg C and velocity V. Sent from my iPhone using CFD Online Forum mobile app

My next question is "Is HTC time varying also"?.If yes , how to extract in Ansys Fluent?.Many thanks Sent from my iPhone using CFD Online Forum mobile app
