Default Coupled interpolation possible??
Posts: n/a
Hi, I must realize studies about a waterblock to cool processors but I need to try about 7 differents thickness for the copper baseplate (power spreading in the block) in order to find the best thickness which give us the better cooling (lowest temperature for die processor).

But I DON'T want to calculate 7 time the flow inside the block because it is always the same. Only thickness of baseplate (under the flow) change and temperature prediction are given in 2 minutes with fluent.

Look at the problem on a 3D block here :

So is there a way to keep the flow data inside my water volume and change the solid volume around it? Is interpolation is possible keeping the flow? Or I should calculate all 7 time ? Other solutions?

Thx for answers
