Since you were not familiar with transient/steady state problems, I suggest you to read Patankar's book (S.V. Patankar, Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow  you can find it online). You will get information about the time step you can use, and also the different transient methods you can apply.

The only reason I haven't been testing the physics using the steady solver is due to the porosity being a function of time. Is there a temporary workaround for this so that I can use the steady solver until I establish a viable model?

Hi all,
I am simulation porous media that at first there are water, methane and hydrate (solid phase), as the pressure decreases the solid phase(hydrate) will dissociate to water and methane. here i have to define a effective porosity that is a function of hydrate saturation using UDF. phi(eff)=phi(abs)*(1Saturation(hydrate)) can any one help me how to do it?

There are many examples in this topic, have a look, try it and return questions if you have.

i am new in fluent and i have some basic questions. i have defined two phases (water and methane) in porous media, now i have to define the third phase (hydrate as a solid phase ) that is stagnant and has no motion. 1)how can i define the initial saturation of this solid phase in porous media? does it need a UDF? 2) the hydrate will dissociate as the pressure fall bellow the hydrate stability pressure (p(equilibrium). ch4.6h2o> ch4 + 6h2o should i define it as a reaction or just a multi phase flow with defining source and sink? 3) i have to define the kinetic of hydrate dissociation for fluent using UDF, mass generation rate of gas= K*phi*S(hydrate)*(p(equilibrium)p) phi= porosity, K=dissociation rate constant, S= saturation of hydrate, p=pressure should i define this in source term of mass equation? your answer will be helpfull for me. thank you.

2) You can define the reactions in your UDF and use it as source/sink term for the mass/species equation. 3) If you have the generation or sink of species, both mass and species conservation equations must be considered for this source/sink term, otherwise there will be no conservation.

My questions is will either of these two methods do what I'm trying to do? And if so, which one is preferred? Last edited by Baden; July 20, 2016 at 18:02.

Here is the code I'm currently using: Code:
#include "udf.h" #define ID 2 /* thread ID of the fluid (porous zone) */ DEFINE_INIT(UDMI_init, d) { Domain *d = Get_Domain(1); Thread *t = Lookup_Thread(d, ID); cell_t c; FILE *fp; int i; int j = 0; float f1[10000]; fp = fopen("data.txt", "r"); for (i = 0; i < 10000; i++) { fscanf(fp, "%f", &f1[i]); } fclose(fp); thread_loop_c(t, d) { begin_c_loop(c, t) { C_UDMI(c, t, 0) = C_UDMI(c, t, 1) = C_UDMI(c, t, 2) = f1[j]; j++; } end_c_loop(c, t) } }

i want to simulate porous media just for one phase in two way 1) Check the “Porous Zone” to enable porous zone in cell zone condition 2) using a momentum source term i have done them and the pressure contours in both was the same. but the velocity contours was different. the code is: #include "udf.h" #define por_gdl 0.4 #define i_permeability 5.68e6 // Inverse Permeability (1/m^2) #define urf 0.1 // under relaxation factor for stability of momentum source term real s1=0., s2=0.; DEFINE_SOURCE(xmom_src,c,t,dS,eqn) { real source, mu, u; mu = C_MU_L(c,t); u = C_U(c,t); source = (mu*u*i_permeability); dS[eqn] = (mu*i_permeability); s1 = s1*(1urf) + source*urf; return s1; } DEFINE_SOURCE(ymom_src,c,t,dS,eqn) { real source, mu, v; mu = C_MU_L(c,t); v = C_V(c,t); source = (mu*v*i_permeability); dS[eqn] = (mu*i_permeability); s2 = s2*(1urf) + source*urf; return s2; } can u tell me what is the problem?
