Hello together!

I hope you can help me with my problem:

I would like to simulate the flow pattern and heat distribution in a solar absorber.

Solar radiation goes through the glass plate and radiates to the cylinder bottom. The cylinder re-radiates the solar ray´s to the cylinder walls and back to the glass plate. Nitorgen flows inside the cylinder (from inlet to outlet) and gets heated by the solar rays and by the "hot cylinder wall".

See attached images Cut, Front, Hinten, side.

I cant find my mistake I get every time this error:

Slave: 2 ----------------------------------
Slave: 2 Error in subroutine FNDVAR :
Slave: 2 Error finding variable RCOEF_SL1
Slave: 2 GETVAR originally called by subroutine get_SEMISS_CSBELG

Parallel run: Received message from slave
-----------------------------------------
Slave partition : 2
Slave routine : ErrAction
Master location : Message Handler
Message label : 001100279
Message follows below - :

+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
| ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. |
| Message: |
| Stopped in routine
+--------------------------------------------------------------------+

Short overview about my settings:

Solid Domains:
Glass (Glass Plate), Ring (Steel) , Cylinder(Steel)
Fluid Domain:
Nitrogen (N2 CHT)
(See Image CFX Pre)

Radiation: Glass ( Monte Carlo ), Cylinder ( Monte Carlo )
The N2 is "passive", it radiates not!
The source of the Radiation is on the outside-surface of the glass plate - and is set as "Boundary Source / Radiation Source with Directional Radiation Flux" to this boundary ( 1000 KW m^-2)


"Outside Surfaces": Heat convection (no Adiabatic walls)

Inlet: constant mass flow, constant temp.
Outlet: pressure



Where is my mistake?
I think my boundary conditions and radiation settings are correct (?)

I appreciate any help, alternative solution proposals too!



Thanks a lot!
Regards

problems are combined provided the domains are connected together and
have the same domain type (solid or fluid/porous). If there are
multiple groups of the same domain type, then the group residual is
identified by the name of the first domain in the connected group.

Can you use the Discrete Transfer radiation model in this application? It is much easier to use them Monte Carlo.

Can you model the radiation load as just a thermal load on the surface it impinges on? In that case you don't need to do a radiation model and that simplifies things a lot.

If you can't get this complex model to run then simplify it. Does the fluids and heat transfer run OK with no radiation model? Can you model radiation heat transfer between two plates and get the correct answer? Add the complex bits one at a time to make sure they are working before proceeding.

Hello Glenn,

thank you for your reply!

"Can you use the Discrete Transfer radiation model in this application? It is much easier to use them Monte Carlo."
- No, i cant select the DT radiation model for my solids, i can select it for my fluid if i activate radiation in my fluid domain (But i dont want radiation from my fluid)

"Can you model the radiation load as just a thermal load on the surface it impinges on? In that case you don't need to do a radiation model and that simplifies things a lot.
"

- I want to examine the distribution of heat due to radiation (I want the correlation between incoming radiation flux and heat distribution on the wall)

"If you can't get this complex model to run then simplify it. Does the fluids and heat transfer run OK with no radiation model? "
- I run a simplify simulation. Fix surface-temperature from the Cylinder 500°C - ass you can see in the image, the heat transfair seems to work correct (i just do about 50 iterations there)

"Can you model radiation heat transfer between two plates and get the correct answer? Add the complex bits one at a time to make sure they are working before proceeding."
- Yes, i already simulate a simplyfied radiation in a cylinder - but just out of one material...


Do i need to turn on the radiation option in my fluid domain to get the radiation from "the glass surface - through the N2 - to the wall?"

Have you found other errors / notes?

Thanks a lot!

I do not have time to check your file in detail.

Yes, you do need to turn radiation modelling on for all domains which the radiation passes through.

Thanks a lot.
I will try it with other setting again.

If anyone has an idea how to solve my problem - feel free to write

From a quick glance to your setup, it seems the radiation never crosses any of the interfaces, it is always reflected/absorbed but never transmitted. Is that the intent of the model ?

For radiation to cross the domain interface, the boundary condition for thermal radiation should be "Conservative Interface Flux". Otherwise, the radiation effect at the interface is only by conduction once the temperature on one side is raised/lowered.

Since the error message is coming from a partition in a parallel simulation, I wonder if the same model works in a serial run, does it ? If it does work in serial, and fails in parallel, you may need to contact ANSYS CFX support personnel.

Hope the above helps,

Hello opaque,

"From a quick glance to your setup, it seems the radiation never crosses any of the interfaces, it is always reflected/absorbed but never transmitted. Is that the intent of the model ?"

- YES! it is - i had the same gues as you^^
But where can i set the transmissivity for the galss? I set the settings for the Solid(Radiation) and in the Boundary (diffus & absorp.) ...

"Conservative Interface Flux" - is in all Interfaces "on" - Image: BC for details.

I will try it in serial mode!

Thanks a lot for you help!

The thermal radiation domain interface implemented in ANSYS CFX is the ideal case where the transmissivity is computed by the Fresnel equations based on the refractive indeces from both sides.

From the documentation

Quote:
8.1.4. Radiation Through Domain Interfaces

If radiation is included through conducting solids, then usually the difference in refractive indices between the fluid and solid determines the amount of reflection and refraction that occurs. The probability of being reflected is given by Fresnels’ equation

....

No absorption takes place at the interface, so the probability of transmission plus reflection is always one. If the photon is transmitted, then the angle of refraction is determined by Snells’ law:

Thanks Opaque,

i think there is my problem: How i can do that.. ?

I can set under Materials the:
Refractive Index, Absorption Coefficient, Scattering Coefficient

..and for the Boundary´s:
Emissivity and Diffuse Fraction.

The surfaces are grey, so emissivity == absorptivity
The surface is semi-transparent when ,0<T<1 transparent when T=1

For my Cylinder Solid (Steel):
Reflexion(R) + Tranimission (T) + Absorption(A) = 1
R = 0.2, A = 0.8, T = 0 = opaque
Sum = 1

For my Glass:
R = 0, A = 0,01 --> T = 0,99 (?)

For N2:
Refractive Index = 1 (gas)
Absoprtion & Scattering = 0

I think I still have not understood something fundamental in the radiation modeling...

Do you have a good excample for radiation modeling?
The Ansys Help (How to model radiation) doesnt help me a lot :/

Regards!
