Dear CFD ppl,

I want to apply heat flux from a paper on wall that is common between solid and fluid zones. As you know, Fluent creates shadow wall in this case. The wall is considered coupled by the solver since the mesh was built in ANSYS MESHER from ANSYS workbench. Now it is not clear if the heat flux boundary condition will be applied under Thermal TAB in each of these walls (wall and shadow)? If I apply the flux, the heat does not transmit to the fluid and a localized high temperature is created which increases Temp to infinity. I mean >5k which ultimately diverges the solution. So please help me out in this regard.

Regards,

SJ

heat source is applied as volumetric heat source (not heat flux)
you should define wall thickness and specify heat generation rate (W/m3)

volumetric cannot be applied since no info is available about it. I have only heat flux data with me. Now if the coupled wall is defined, how can I define a wall thickness?

Choosing temperature or heat flux for either the wall or shadow wall uncouples the interface. Then you specify the heat flux on both the walls (positive for one and negative for the other). If this diverges then you have another issue.

When I apply the heat flux, the coupled shadow BC also gets heat flux automatically applied. This does not let me specify negative heat flux on the shadow wall. This means that the interfacing still remains intact after applying heat flux.

It should break unless your case is so special that it is somehow bugged. See Thermal Conditions for Two-Sided Wallsl.

Thanks for your reply Lucky but what do you think about how this simulation can be done as shown in fig 22. although the flux is applied at the interface ?. is it correct to take air and patch it with 0 pressure to model vacuum in this case. Air and tube interface is restricting to apply heat flux.

where i can find a volumetric heat source option, in case of wall and shadow wall both has to give flux (or volumetric heat source) or only wall has to give
