Default Temperature gradient
Posts: n/a
Hello. I would like to get some help. Actually, I use the CFX-10.0. By the way, I want to get two types of temperature gradient. Namely,

1) Temperature gradient w.r.t space (i.e., X,Y,Z)at each node for each time step 2) Temperature gradient w.r.t time(i.e., t)at each node for each time step

Please let me know about how to save the values of 1) and 2) in csv file format.

Thank you so much.

I believe the only way to do this in CFX 10.0 is through User CEL routines (user fortran).

You can access both spatial and time derivatives of variables within a User CEL routine with a call to user_getvar(), and specifying the variable name with an appropriate extension: 'Temperature.Gradient' for the spatial derivative and 'Temperature.Time Derivative' for the temporal one.

In CFX 11.0, I think both of these are available through CEL.

Hope this helps,
