 July 27, 2019, 16:04 Thermal boundaray conditions #1 New Member   Edwin P Join Date: Jun 2018 Posts: 13 Rep Power: 8 Hello, I have a long duct opened at atmospheric pressure. I want to model a small section near to the end of the duct which generates heat. I have transient measurements of temperature at the beginning and at the end of the that section. At time t=0, all the system is at ambient temperature. Should I use both the inlet and oultlet temperature measurements of my sections as a boundary conditions in Ansys Fluent? Help me please, Regards Svetlana likes this. Last edited by intied; July 27, 2019 at 16:05. Reason: typo error

The temperature increase inside the duct is due to a solid with internal heat generation. I added a source term and I want to model its transient temperature profile

You would just use pressure outlet or outflow BC or something. Just make sure you have the right inlet conditions and whatever else you need for your simulation. I can't follow what you want to do with heat generation and an inlet temperature.

Thank you.

In fact, I am using pressure inlet and pressure outlet as boundary conditions. But, I am not sure if I have to use the transient temperature profile in the "Thermal" tab of those boundary conditions.

By other hand, I have a small solid which generates heat. I want to model its transient temperature.

I have a small solid which generates heat due to joule effect. Therefore, near to that soild, the ambient temperature changes.

Thank you
