applying profile data as a boundary condition
Hai all I want to apply the temperature profile data which is imported from Ansys as a heat source to a flow analysis in CFX.

It is a example file in "Ansys that is an Unidirectional load transfer from ANSYS to CFX". In that they have done thermal analysis in ANSYS.That results (temperature prifile)has to be apply as source in CFx.From ansys solid, fluid mesh imported as .cdb file and profile data imported as .csv file to CFX.

After applying all BCs i created one sub domain which is same as the solid domain in that to set the energy source using the imported profile data by selecting energy in equation sources and source in the energy option and entered the CEL expression name.But it is give error says that CEL error. Error at the start of the line.Error setting the source via expressions. i try to give that profile data but i could not.

Please guide me in this regard.

Re: applying profile data as a boundary condition
Hi Vadivel,

You have a boundary condition. You have to apply this on a boundary! Not in a solid. Therefore, you don't have to include the metal, nor the energy source.

You only need the fluid domain, and set a wall heat flux or temperature on the wall as a wall boundary condition.

Hope this helps, Gert-Jan
