 April 18, 2002, 05:02 How can we impose a map of temperature #1 LEGENDRE Guest   Posts: n/a We want to impose a map of temperature in a part of a fluid domain creatd withh CFX 5. What are the best and easiest methodology currently used ? CFX 5 documentation describes only the possibility to impose an energy source, which doesnt correspond to our problem. Thanks for a quick reply

Is is because you have temperature measurements within the fluid at particular locations? A further explanation of the physical problem will be helpful. Robin

Since you know the temperature distribution in your volume, then that implies you would know the temperature distribution on the surfaces enclosing that volume. So, what you need to do is apply temperature specified boundary conditions on the surfaces. Go back to build, delete the subdomain, apply your temperature distribution boundary condition to the surfaces instead (you may have to use CEL interpolation or user fortran to deal with the distribution). Rerun the problem and your done. Neale
