 December 16, 2002, 04:21 bouyancy driven flow #1 adrienne Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, i have problem about the setting for the bouyancy driven flow, how would know the simulation should neglect the bouyancy effect or not? Is the value of the y-axis acceleration is -9.81ms^2 at most of the time? how to determine the x- or z-axis acceleration? what should i put for the density reference?? is that the density of the fluid that i used in simulation? is there got anymore details tutorial about the bouyancy driven heat transfer?? thanks guys.... have a nice day!!!

If you look in the manual there should be recomendations so as how to set this up (both in CFX-4 and 5 manuals). If you are dealing with dispersed flows (bubbles) the ref density should be that of the dispersed phase; otherwise in FS cases, it should be that of the lighter fluid.

Then define the buoyancy reference density 9assuming you are using the Thermal energy model) by looking at your ambient density and your max or min density, then adopting a reference density at about half way between the two. also have a look at the Help manual on advice on modelling, there is a section in the that may help (Page 469).

Follow Bob's advice in your case indeed; please note however that all the info/hints Bob and I gave are in the manual I believe.

I think that there are something different to set the condition to solve bouyancy driven flow between CFX4 and CFX5.There is the tutorial about your question. It is tutorial No.6. And try to search for the word "bouyancy" or "Boussinesq" in the help, then you will get the good explanation on this. Hope this help. Atit
