 May 2, 2009, 04:55 WALL and WALL shadow #1 New Member   Eric Join Date: Apr 2009 Posts: 23 Rep Power: 10 Sponsored Links hello! I define BC WALL (one side is solid,the other is fluid)in gambit,but i fine WALL and WALL shadow when defining BC in fluent. can anyone tell me the meaning of wall shadow? my purpose is to define the temperature of the wall.how should i define the two sides of the interface? thanks!!!!!!!!!!

You can specify independent thermal boundary conditions for the fluid side and the solid side but in most situations you would want to specify a "coupled" boundary condition (heat flux is conserved across the boundary) and specify the thermal boundary conditions (e.g. constant temperature) at the outer wall of the solid region.

thanks!friend!
i still have two questions:
1,wall and wall shadow which is solid BC,and which is fluid BC?
2,i want to define the temperature or heat flux in the solid side ,then should i define the other BC as "couple"?

However, you cannot specify "coupled" BC at the wall and "temperature" at its shadow. By specifying "coupled", you are stating that the flux on the solid side is the same as the flux on the fluid side. There is no additional input needed at that point. You will need to specify temperature or heat flux boundary condition at the outside wall of the solid. Alternatively you may choose not to model heat transfer in the solid in which case you can as well delete the solid zone.

thanks i will have a try!
