 May 12, 2006, 09:03 Cooling simple 3D geometry problem #1 Luk Guest   Posts: n/a Dear all, I am very fresh Gambit/Fluent user and need to solve a CFD simple problem on the lend computer. My geomery is very simple: I have (created in inventor and exported as .stp) solid it and cylinder matching this hole that symobolics volume of water. I want to simulate cooling of the solid by water that flows through it. I am playing with this for a long time but noticed no interaction between solid and fluid despite patched temperature difference. I guess that problem is in meshing/setting boundary conditions of the "pipe". Can anyone describe way to mesh it properly in gambit? I tryed to do: - load a solid and subtract a cylinder (to get a solid with hole) and than add a cylinder as a second volume. After that set BC's and mesh - load a solid and cylinder without subtracting and mesh it. None of these tryes give any "cooling" result in final solution (nor Fluent notices any shadow faces). I would be very grateful for any help, With best regards, Lukasz

I assumed that fluid (Water) will be heated by surrounding hot block (which, in turn will be cooled down). So I though that I need fluid zone inside. In the end I am interested in cooling ratio of the block and leaving water temperature as a function of time. Luk

As I understood you want to see temperature of the fluid and temperature of the solid also. If you do not have fluid flow, then just write: M(fluid).cp(fluid).(t1-tx)=M(solid).cp(solid).(tx-t2)
