 May 10, 2004, 14:43 secondary flow very small #1 Marko Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I have a Problem. I modeled a square duct 25mm high and wide and 100mm long. The secondary flow in the outlet is very small in the corner. When the duct is longer, the secondary flow will be bigger. in Fluent I can see the secondary Flow full after 20-30 mm from inlet. in cfx in a longer duct after 400-500mm. I have the same boundary conditions. In Fluent I used the RSM. In cfx 5.6 I used all Reynolds stress models but every model has circa the same results. In literature the secondary flow is full after a very short distance (2*h). I think fluent calculate correct. what is my mistake in cfx I think cfx can calculate good secondary flows too. Can anybody help me?

If it was unstructured you need to remember that the resolution in CFX depends on the number of nodes and not the number of elements, so the same mesh would actually be coarser.

Could you please tell me how to plot the secondary flow in a plane normal to the flow direction in fluent/cfx?
