Default Laminar Periodic flow problem
Posts: n/a

Im currently modelling a laminar flow through a circular pipe. I am investigating into the accuracy of correlations to the results produced by Fluent. I am trying to get a value for the sufrace heat flux and i know this should be constant all over the wall of the pipe in a periodic case, but when I run mine i seem to get a "build up" of flux at the entry of the pipe and none for the rest of the pipe. Can anyone help me??

Thanks, Leigh
