UDF for condensation or boiling
Hello everyone,
I am doing a project about condensation in FLUENT. There is a watervapor two phase flow passing through a cooler wall. I am searching a UDF for condensation. Does anyone have the UDF code for condensation or boiling? Thanks in advance. Yvonne 
Re: UDF for condensation or boiling
I think I saw one about mass transfer in multiphase flows based on saturation temperature on the UDF manual. DEFINE_MASS_TRANSFER, or something like that.

hello edi ghirardi,
I already got them. thank you reply. Best Yvonne 
Condensation UDF
Hi Yvonne,
I was searching for a condensation UDF. I am working on condensation through microchannels. I need to give water vapor at the inlet. I was wondering if i need to use udf...Since it is condensation, as the fluid flows through the channel, there should be a phase change. I was wondering if i shud give the option of multiphase in fluent. Please help me on this. I would also appreciate if you could send me ur udf file. Best Regards Yaamunan 
Hi Guys
I have one developed part of my work. It is working nicely.

Hello sreerao!
I have recently started to work with UDF and can not understand what this line means : { if (ci) AddSources(p); //what exactly does that mean?? p>current_law_index++; HeatMassUpdate(p,ci); // and that too??? vapor_on = FALSE; return; } Thanks in advance. 

request for udf for condensation
where is available udf for condensation in manual???? or can specify any other resourse??

Wall condensation
Hi,
I have to model the wall condensation for water vapor. I am new to UDF writing. If you could mail me the UDF, it will a great help to start with. Thanks. Quote:

Have a look at tutorial titled Heat and Mass Transfer with the Mixture Model
and EvaporationCondensation Model. It demonstrates usage of evaporationcondensation model. I dont think you need UDF unless something very complex is happening in your model. 
Wall Condensation
Hi,
I have to model condensation of water vapour in a vertical minichannel. I am new to fluent. Could anyone help me with it please? I am using the evaporation/condensation model. However, I am not having the condensate film on the wall.. :confused::confused: Thank you
