 August 21, 2006, 06:01 define source model #1 greg Guest   Posts: n/a Hi. In define source model we have such statement: DEFINE_SOURCE(enrg_src, cell, mix_th, dS, eqn) What is dS and eqn responsible for? How this affect on energy source (code below)? DEFINE_SOURCE(enrg_src, cell, mix_th, dS, eqn) { Thread *pri_th, *sec_th; real m_dot; real T_SAT = 100; real lambda1 = 1; real lambda2 = 1; real q = 1000; pri_th = THREAD_SUB_THREAD(mix_th, 0); sec_th = THREAD_SUB_THREAD(mix_th, 1); if(C_T(cell, mix_th)>=T_SAT) { m_dot = -(12* lambda1 * (fabs(C_T(cell,sec_th)-T_SAT)) * 1)/q; dS[eqn] = -(12* lambda1 * 1)/q;} else { m_dot =(12* lambda2 * (fabs(C_T(cell,pri_th)-T_SAT)) * 1)/q; dS[eqn] = (12* lambdaH2O * 1)/q;} thank you for help

It doesnt change the final solution, it just guides it in the right direction. You can find a more detailed explanation on the CFD Wiki at http://www.cfd-online.com/Wiki/Sourc..._linearization
