Default Area-averaged Nusselt number
Posts: n/a
Hello together!

I'm investigating a jet impingement cooling arrangement using cfx11.0 and I want to calculate the area averaged Nusselt number of different areas of the target surface. Now my question; how can I divide the target surface (which is one domain in cfx till now) in several areas using cfx post. And how can I calculate the area averaged Nusselt number of these surfaces?

Hope you can help me! Thank you

The best way is to define them as separate regions in meshing then it is easy to get the results in post-processing. If the target surface has different facets you can still get CFX-post to calculate based on the facets. If you want to sub-divide a larger surface in CFX-Post you can use the bounds option or a user surface with method "from contour" and make the defining contour X/Y/Z functions to define the region you want. It is fiddley but it can be done.
