I'm performing a parallel run with CFX of a supersonic flow inside a tank, using the RNG-K-epsilon turbolent model with the activation of the high- speed Wall Heat Transfer Model..

It's my first time facing with this fluid dynamic problems so I would like to have a discussion about this.

This is the output of ANSYS:

Parallel run: Received message from slave
-----------------------------------------
Slave partition : 3
Slave routine : get_TWFTFC
Master location : End of Continuity Loop
Message label : 009100015
Message follows below - :
+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
| ****** Notice ****** |
| The non-dimensional near wall temperature (T+) has been clipped |
| for calculation of Wall Heat Transfer Coefficient. |
| |
| Boundary Condition : Walls |
| T+ clip value = 1.0000E-10 |
| |
| If this situation persists and you are using the High Speed Model, |
| consider enabling Mach number based blending between low speed and |
| high speed wall functions. You can do so by specifying a Mach |
| number threshold as follows: |
| |
| EXPERT PARAMETERS: |
| highspeed wf mach threshold = 0.1 # default=0.0 (off) |
| END


What should I do in this case? Modify the wall function mach threshould as suggested by the programme, using the text command line?

Thanks for your comprehension!

It is more likely that your simulation has resulting in a non-physical solution and is possibly diverging. I would check the result you have to see if something weird is happening. Do not change the mach threshold until you are absolutely sure that your model is correct and that you need to do it.

Thank you for your fast response.

The same model starting from 100 Pa as initial pressure works well. Instead, tuning the initial pressure to 5 Pa, the software gives me that error.

I should check if the continuity regime is still valid, shoudn't it?

Regards

Yes, you should check that.

If you save a backup file in the iteration before it crashes you should be able to see where the simulation is going weird. It would be even better if you add the residuals to the results file because then you can see where the residuals are worst, which is likely to be the location of the problem.

Hi,
I am working on heat addition to compressible flow. Basically, I have a straight rectangular channel with a pressure inlet and pressure outlet. My lower wall is set with a heat flux(thermal boundary condition) of 5000W/m2. I chose the k-epsilon model. But I cannot see this heat addition effect on the flow. Can someone suggest to me any other way to do this?

Opaque will become famous soon enough
Assuming you are running steady-state, what value will you get for the following expression?

massFlowInt(Total Enthalpy)@Outlet - massFlowInt(Total Enthalpy)@Inlet

It better be

areaInt(Heat Flux)@Lower Wall

Otherwise, you have not converged the solution well enough.
