Build a pipe with different layers
Dear Colleagues

I am trying to simulate the heat transfer process in an insulated pipe. The pipe is used to transfer a hot water (85'C) between two points (100 m) and the outlet wall temperature is fixed at 10'C. The inner and outlet diameter for pipe are 50/60 mm while the insulator has 65 mm outlet diameter. Thermal conductivities for pipe and insulator are 35 and 2 kW/m.K.

I have used CFX 5.5 to build my case. However, I found it quite difficult to build a pipe with different layer.

Any help will be appreciated!

Note; I am a new user

Best Regards

Re: Same problem

Firstly, your version of CFX is very old. I recommend you update to the current version. Much nicer to use, much easier.

There are examples which describe the generation of multi-domain meshes in CFX-Build. Give them a try.
