Volume Fraction, profile data problem
I´m simulating waves using profile data at the inlet. As I have experimental data from the height of the wave vs time, I used a profile data containing x,y,z and volume fraction as columnes.
The results aren´t correct.
x and y are fixed values (the point where the height of the wave is measured). I have put x as the time and y = 0 all time.
z is the mesured height.
Volume Fraction values are 1 or 0 depending on the value of z (positive or negative)
The expression: Filename.Volume Fraction((t*1[s^-1]*1[m]),y,z)
It doesn´t work!!!
Would kindly anyone tell me what could be wrong?
Thank you very much in advance
I think a 1D interpolation function would be more appropriate than the 3D one you are using. Try that.
Thank you, Glenn.
I have tried that but as the problem is 3D, the profile data needs three columns for x,y,z and one for the volume fraction. CFX doesn´t let me load the profile data file with only 2 columns (one for x as the time and one for the volune fraction)
I just did the same thing, but for a measured mass flow rate instead and a 1D profile data function worked fine for me.
Argument Units = [m]
Extend Max = true
Extend Min = true
File Name = massflow.csv
Option = Profile Data
Spatial Fields = X
DATA FIELD: Mass Flow Rate
Field Name = Mass Flow Rate
Result Units = [kg s^-1]
and the boundary condition:
Boundary Type = INLET
Location = F18.16
Option = Normal to Boundary Condition
Option = Subsonic
MASS AND MOMENTUM:
Mass Flow Rate = MassFlowInlet.Mass Flow Rate(FT)
Option = Mass Flow Rate
Option = Low Intensity and Eddy Viscosity Ratio
where FT is defined as FT = 1[m/s]*t
Thank you very much, Glenn and Lance.
I´m running the simulation, tomorrow I will see the results.
