Equations for conservative heat transfer at solidporous interface in CFX
1 Attachment(s)
Hello,
I need some clarification on the conservation of energy on a solid porous interface with nonequilibrium porous medium model in CFX. I could not find these equations in CFX documentation. Literature search led me to this paper: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/1...07780500430967 This paper mentions the equations for solidporous interface as in the attached figure. Now 1) Does CFX use same equations for conservation of heat transfer on solidporous interface? 2) The first equation equates temperature of solid (Ts) with average temperature of porous medium (Tpor). Now as per the third equation Tpor is a volume average of solid and fluid phase temperatures in porous medium. Shouldn't Tpor be a energy averaged temperature? i.e. the third equation modified as : Tpor = (rho_f*cp_f*epsilon*T_f + rho_s*cp_s*(1epsilon)*T_s)por Thanks for your inputs 
Good question. I do not know so cannot help you. If it is not described in the documentation then I suspect you will have to discuss it with ANSYS support.
