 April 22, 2013, 16:15 problem with cfx expressions #1 Member   Talles Caio Join Date: Oct 2012 Location: Brazil Posts: 96 Rep Power: 7 personnel must enter the equation in the cfx expressions: Q = stefan*0.7139*(((1114.15^4)[K^4] ) - (Ts^4)[K^4] ) The Stefan-Boltzmann Law This term is used to heat the pipe, Ts is the surface temperature of geometry in my case is a pipe, the question is how should I call Ts in the expressions cfx??

For Fixed Temperature walls, the wall temperature is the specified value Tw. For all other heat transfer boundary conditions, the wall temperature is backed out from turbulent wall functions when running a turbulent flow model. For laminar flow modelling the wall temperature is just the local fluid temperature at the vertex adjacent to the wall.
