H. Nouman is on a distinguished road

I have made design calculations for a solar pond to extract 9.35 MW heat, of following parameters: 2m deep, 42336m2 surface area, outlet temperature 78 oC and side wall/bottom losses=0
Now i want to do thermal analysis through layers of solar pond by using Ansys Fluent... But i do not know how to define densities in different layers of the pond and which boundary conditions should i choose for my 2-D model??

any missing data will be provided, if desired.

any expert's help is required please.

P.S.: if possible, can someone please share with me an Ansys Fluent model file of solar pond??? i would be glad.
Further, if someone could provide me an Ansys Fluent tutorial of solar pond, i will really be thankful.

Thanks in anticipation.
