hello again,
I am doing a project on flow around a surface piercing cylinder. I carried out an experiment to measure the height of the water in the channel, the height of the flow when it rises up at the front of the cylinder and dips down around the sides and back of the cylinder. The results were:
free stream height=80mm
wave height at front of cylinder=81mm
side(90 degrees)=76mm
back=75mm
The velocity of the flume was 0.21m and the width of the flume was 120mm.
I used the CFX tutorial on flow over a bump to try and learn how to carry out this problem. I got all the basic steps in and used the expressions:
Name Definition
UpH 0.08[m]
DownH 0.08 [m]
DenWater 997 [kg m^-3]
DenRef 1.185 [kg m^-3]
DenH (DenWater - DenRef )
UpVFAir step((y-UpH)/1[m])
UpVFWater 1-UpVFAir
UpPres DenH*g*UpVFWater*(UpH-y)
DownVFAir step((y-DownH)/1[m])
DownVFWater 1-DownVFAir
DownPres DenH*g*DownVFWater*(DownH-y)
The only things I changed from the tutorial were the upstream and downstream heights. The domain I'm using is 1m long and 120mm wide. I was wondering why when I run the results the flow seems to come in to the inlet boundary at the correct height of 80mm but then dips down dramatically before it develops up to the cylinder were the action happens. The results I was looking to achieve were the pressure profile of the cylinder, the height of the isosurface around the cylinder and the Cd of the cylinder. Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

PS: I have my file saved as an ANSYS workbench file but it will not allow me to attach it?

Please post your CCL (that's just a small text file) and an image of what you are modelling.

Ghorrocks,
Thanks for your help and time it is much appreciated. I am not sure how to access the ccl file.I am presuming it is the .out file on ANSYS workbench 15 as it is a text file. I have attached 3 photos in a word document also to try show the situation a little better. As you will see from the photo at the inlet boundary the flow suddenly drops. Maybe there is a problem with the expressions used further upstream.
Thanks again.

In CFX-Pre go file export CCL.

When the free surface rapidly changes like this it is usually because the free surface you have specified is incompatible with the flow conditions (velocity or fluid motion or whatever) and this causes the fluid motion to rapidly drop. The problem is usually a incorrectly defined boundary condition.

Ghorrocks,
attached are 2 pictures. I am unable to find the .ccl file in the directory at the moment im not too sure how to access it from workbench.
Thanks.

Apolagies only saw your last message there. I tried to export but I keep getting a warning message saying "nothing to export" in the cfx pre. It is probably because I am using a virtual machine to access ANSYS.
Thanks
Kevin

CFX-Pre is the setup block in workbench. You can only access the CCL via the GUI from CFX-Pre.

Your images confirm what I suspected, you almost certainly have not specified the inlet BC correctly. The CCL will contain the information about what you have done.

Ghorrocks,
Above is the CCL file. I am not sure how to set boundaries any other way. Set an inlet velocity and an outlet static pressure. I used the 2 walls as non slip walls along with cylinder surfaces. The top was used as an opening with entrainment.
Thanks
Kevin

The boundaries you have defined are inconsistent. You have set a flow rate and free surface height at the inlet (which is it applying), but the exit boundary condition requires the free surface to be much lower than you specify and this lower height propagates back up the domain.

You need to be a bit more clever with your exit boundary. I would consider replacing the exit boundary with a chamber where you keep the free surface height at the desired level. Or you might use a momentum source term to do it. Whatever you do, have a careful think about exactly what your BCs are specifying.

The way this tutorial sets up the boundary conditions might not be the best way for you to do it in your case.
