 August 7, 2020, 03:39 Experience with 9 coefficient Janaf model modeling specific heat capacity #1 Member   Join Date: May 2020 Posts: 42 Rep Power: 5 Hello, I am modeling hypersonic air flow at Ma=7.9 and expect the total temperatures to be around 12000K (without considering chemical reactions). I always used the 7 coefficient polynomials for modeling my specific heat cp(T). But these polynomials are only valid up to 6000K. I am not sure whether FLUENT extrapolates values outside of this area or if it assumes a constant cp. I have seen that the newer 9 coefficient polynomials can be fit up to 20000K. For the species O2, N2, O, N, NO I have gotten the coefficients which are valid for a max. temp of 20000K. But the one for air is apparently still only valid for a max temp of 6000K. This is the link which provides the 9 coefficient polynomials: https://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/CEAWeb/ceaThermoBuild.htm Does anyone have experience with modeling air in such flight conditions? Later on I plan to implement chemical reactions with which the maximum stagnation/total temperatures shoud be no higher than 7000K. So I don't think this should be an extreme problem at that point. But for initialising my problem I would like to start without chemical reactions and with air as fluid. Fluid conditions: Ts=1113K, ps=1824Pa, rho=5.71E-3kg/m^3 Thank you very much!

For values above 6000K look at graph trend and based on your expectations extrapolate curve there __________________ best regards ****************************** press LIKE if this message was helpful

 August 19, 2020, 02:56 #5 Member   Join Date: May 2020 Posts: 42 Rep Power: 5 Another question which you or somebody else might be able to answer: The standard 7 coefficient cp(T) polynom has the form of a classic polynom: cp/R = a1+a2*T+a3*T^2+a4*T^3+a5*T^4 This is easy to implement in FLUENT as you mentioned. But the 9 coeffcient cp(T) polynom has a different form: cp/R = a1/T^2+a2/T+a3+a4*T+a5*T^2+a6*T^3+a7*T^4 Do you have to write an UDF to be able to implement this kind of "polynom" or is there a different way in ANSYS FLUENT? Thanks
