 March 5, 2014, 02:30 Nu No for fully developed region #1 New Member   mina Join Date: Nov 2013 Posts: 20 Rep Power: 5 Hello I have a problem, I am doing simulation of a laminar water flow in a 2D channel but I cannot reach the desired Nu=7.54. I don't know where the problem exists. could anybody help me channel: 75mm (H) x 1500mm (L) thickness=0.6 mm Re=80 Dh (hydraulic diameter)= 75mm T inlet=298K T wall=400K inlet b.c= normal speed according re=80 outle b.c=mass flow=p*u*A , A=0.6*75 but the Nu number i obtained is around 4.98

What reference temperature do you think CFX bases the heat transfer coefficient on? And what reference temperature do you think literature bases the heat transfer coefficient on? Don't use CFX's definition of the Nusselt number / heat transfer coefficient. I.e. if the literature base these values on some bulk temperature then use the bulk temperature in CFX.

If you are going to ignore the advice you get on this forum then why bother posting on it? You have a velocity inlet and a mass flow outlet. This is not good. You need to make one of these boundaries a pressure boundary. Read the section in the documentation about selection of boundary conditions.

 March 7, 2014, 04:40 #8 Senior Member   Matthias Voß Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Berlin, Germany Posts: 449 Rep Power: 13 You should definitely check your boundary layer - i remember that to get the temperature gradient/wallheatflux right, you need a pretty super fine resolution at the wall. Like twice the resolution for the drag/lift-forces to remain constant when refining the mesh resolution. please post some pictures.
