 May 18, 2006, 09:30 Re: About create new material #3 opaque Guest   Posts: n/a Dear Jason, I notice that you are setting the Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Volume instead of at constant pressure.. To convert from Constant Volume to Constant Pressure you need the derivative of density respect to pressure at constant temperature.. Perhaps the conversion has a bug.. Try setting the Cp instead.. Good luck, Opaque..

 May 18, 2006, 21:07 Re: About create new material #4 jasonchang Guest   Posts: n/a Dear chayriss ,opaque: I modify the setting just as what you suggest,it works well.Thank you. By the way,how to use ansys cfx10.0 to simulate solidification and fluid flow?I would appreciate if anyone can give me some advice. It was said that just CEL can set up the modelling,Is it true?I am not good at FORTRAN language. Thanks in advance.
