unexpected temperature
Hi all, I have a film (fully developed) for which i have already solved for underlying hydrodynamics.It is 2 phase flow( air-primary phase and fluid secondary phase). Now i want to solve energy equation.The maximum and minimum temperatures of wall are 450 and 300 K.I am using vof model And it i am calculating for steady flow. After few iterations I found stange value of temperatutes more than maximun temperature. If any one have the idea abt this unexpected temperatures. .... kethireddy

Re: unexpected temperature
Hello Kethireddy

Please try to limit the temperature to 450 and 300 K by going to Solve->Limits, fix the max and min temp.

Else you can adjust the Energy values of the Underrelaxation factors in solve-> controls

Tell me if it helps,

Regards Karthick

Re: unexpected temperature
Hi thanks for reply.I am interested in seeing temperatuture distibution.i dont want to force temperature to be changed.Then it will be diffficult to predict temperature distribution. I have infact played with under relaxaton factors.No use. any way thanks for email....kethireddy
