Hi,
I am an undergraduate student, I'm trying to simulate the flow field on a model I made of an aeronatuical combustor. The thing is that I am not considering combustion, just the hot flow and the cold flow around the material (image). My model is compressible and turbulent k-omega (according o a tutorial I saw). I have 3 inlets 2 of cold flow (580 K) of 0.79 and 0.82kg/s, and a hot one (2300K) of 0.414kg/s. The fluid is air. I don't know why fluent is not responding when i turn on the ideal gas feature in material properties. It worked well when the density was fixed. I have refined my mesh to 6 million cells and now my system isn't even able to initialize with hybrid initalization. What could be the problem? Is ANSYS not reading parameters with such high. I will post the images.

Edit: the pressure on the inlets is 9.5 atm

What do you mean by Fluent is not responding?

Hi Vinerm,

I mean that the iterations are taking to much time to calculate the parameters. Much of the time this problems have to be with pressure limitations and turbulent viscosity ratio limitations, and then eventually fluent detects a floating point exception when the calculations are advanced (in coarsed meshes). I have tried different sizes of elements.

Thank you for replying.
Jorge

With ideal gas, you should set up operating pressure as 0 and use absolute values of pressure at inlet and outlet. Try with a coarser mesh. If you are using cooling holes in the liner, then ensure that there are at least 18 nodes along the circular edge. Furthermore, k-\omega is not meant for such applications, but for wall bounded flows. Though you are not modeling combustion still the mixing of cold gas with hot gas is better predicted with k-\varepsilon. Or use SST k-\omega.

Thank you, I will try with those turbulence models also I am reading the faq about fluent, very helpful. I am a new member so maybe my thread was not aligned with the community standards. I will post a more specific new thread when I encounter a more specific problem. I feel really optimistic about my simulation now that you gave me that advice.

Regards,
Jorge
