Those "multiple laminar separation bubbles" could be start-up/shedding vortices. If you average the Cp graph over time, you should obtain a better Cp distribution (the sharp spikes in the Cp graph should average to a plateau).

 December 14, 2010, 02:53 #23 Member   Muhammad Aqib Chishty Join Date: Nov 2010 Posts: 50 Rep Power: 8 PISO is actually present in Fluent 12.0.16 CFX. The Pressure-Implicit with Splitting of Operators (PISO) pressure-velocity coupling scheme, part of the SIMPLE family of algorithms, is based on the higher degree of the approximate relation between the corrections for pressure and velocity. One of the limitations of the SIMPLE and SIMPLEC algorithms is that new velocities and corresponding fluxes do not satisfy the momentum balance after the pressure-correction equation is solved.

now my graph of Cp is like that after taking the time step size of 0.001.

CFX only uses a coupled solver, very similar to the coupled solver in Fluent (the coupled solver in Fluent is from CFX technology, and for ancient history buffs the coupled solver in CFX came from Tascflow which was purchased by CFX years ago.)

 December 14, 2010, 06:37 #30 Member   Muhammad Aqib Chishty Join Date: Nov 2010 Posts: 50 Rep Power: 8 About PISO scheme

 December 14, 2010, 06:43 #31 Super Moderator   Glenn Horrocks Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Sydney, Australia Posts: 13,059 Rep Power: 101 I am well aware of what the PISO scheme is. PISO is an option in Fluent, and is not available in CFX - and this is a CFX forum. So what don't I understand?

 December 14, 2010, 14:38 #33 Senior Member   Joshua Counsil Join Date: Jul 2009 Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada Posts: 366 Rep Power: 10 That Cp graph looks much better. Did you average the Cp values over time?

 December 22, 2010, 03:11 #34 Member   Muhammad Aqib Chishty Join Date: Nov 2010 Posts: 50 Rep Power: 8 are you talking about the single value averaged on the whole blade? Are you asking about the mean value of Cp plot over the complete flow time? If you are talking about the first case then should i average the value on the vertex or facet?

 December 22, 2010, 12:02 #35 Senior Member   Joshua Counsil Join Date: Jul 2009 Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada Posts: 366 Rep Power: 10 I'm talking about Cp averaged over time.

 December 22, 2010, 14:53 #36 Member   Muhammad Aqib Chishty Join Date: Nov 2010 Posts: 50 Rep Power: 8 i can't understand how to get that? Did i take Facet Average over Blade? How to take the Average Cp over time?

 December 22, 2010, 17:30 #37 Senior Member   Joshua Counsil Join Date: Jul 2009 Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada Posts: 366 Rep Power: 10 You'll have to export the Cp data at each timestep, which can be done with a batch file, then write a macro that averages all the Cp files.

 December 24, 2010, 02:20 #38 Member   Muhammad Aqib Chishty Join Date: Nov 2010 Posts: 50 Rep Power: 8 I calculate the Pressure co-efficient value by two methods tell me which is right.... 1. I record the Pressure co-efficient value and select the "Integral" in Report type option(In surface Monitor) and after 4.4239 sec my average value is: 0.467477514 2. I record the Pressure co-efficient value and select the "Facet Average" in Report type option(In surface Monitor) and after 4.4239 sec my average value is: 1.063549129 Tell me which method is right and which value is more accurate?

 December 24, 2010, 02:21 #39 Member   Muhammad Aqib Chishty Join Date: Nov 2010 Posts: 50 Rep Power: 8 My Velocity Ratio is: Vout/Vin = 1.779 is it ok?
