 June 8, 2011, 07:15 Function integral over time #1 New Member   Andrew Join Date: Jun 2011 Posts: 13 Rep Power: 8 Sponsored Links Tell me please, is there any possibility to use Ansys CFX time as a parameter in the formulation of transients problems. In the standard features you can not take the time integral. Is there a function integral over time? Or subroutine, which allows to produce a similar action. I'll be very grateful to you for any help in my problem.

In fact, we can change the flow of paint in each time, so I want to know how much paint has been applied to the desired point in time. That is the problem confined to the creation of a counter weight of the paint to a certain time. Or the inverse problem - we have a certain volume of paint, we are doing with various pitch. How much does it for painting?

 June 10, 2011, 06:44 #8 Super Moderator   Glenn Horrocks Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Sydney, Australia Posts: 13,738 Rep Power: 106 The time integral of a heat flow is the increase/decrease in heat. So you can do a volume integral of the heat in the domain. No need for a time integral.

The rate of passage may vary. The number of these particles we want to calculate. Or calculate the time spent checkpoint in a spot source, which is the same. It is for this and need the time integral.

 June 12, 2011, 02:03 #11 New Member   Andrew Join Date: Jun 2011 Posts: 13 Rep Power: 8 Calculation of the integral over time is needed for next-motion 2 products relative to each other in time. We need to count how many times one overlaps another. That is needed some counter. The problem of heat. If you need a figure for clarity, write to send you

 June 20, 2011, 02:59 #13 New Member   Andrew Join Date: Jun 2011 Posts: 13 Rep Power: 8 In principle, I need to find the time integral of the variable for Ansys not statsianary problem, the picture will not work. Is there a chance?

 June 20, 2011, 18:41 #14 Super Moderator   Glenn Horrocks Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Sydney, Australia Posts: 13,738 Rep Power: 106 CFX cannot do time integrals in CEL so it is not easy to do in general. The reason I am trying to understand what you are doing is often there is another way to implement it, but to suggest something I have to know what you are doing. Can you tell me what variable you are trying to integrate? And what what is the termination condition you want to apply?

 July 8, 2011, 08:09 #19 New Member   Andrew Join Date: Jun 2011 Posts: 13 Rep Power: 8 I mean that in what form you would like to see the pictures?
