 May 7, 2003, 08:53 electrical resistance of a oven #1 Giovanni Guest   Posts: n/a I have to do a transient analysis of a kitchen oven. The electrical resistance drains 1600W. Is it sufficient to impose an equivalent heat flux on the surface of the resistance? Thank you Giovanni

 May 7, 2003, 09:46 Re: electrical resistance of a oven #3 Harry Fulmer Guest   Posts: n/a You would have to do CHT as the heat flux budget (convective/radiative) from the element is ciritical in oven modelling. Conduction from the element out of the oven would also account for some of the total dissipation although I'm not sure if that would be a dominant heat loss mechanism.

I hope that the code is able to calculate radiation and to impose Qconv + Qrad = 1600 in the resistance. At this moment I cannot model the resistance as a solid. I have not enough time. So I'm imposing a flux of 1600W. But the question is: is it really true that the flux is exacly 1600W, and in a transient analysis should I impose it gradually? Thank you Giovanni

I think that the flux transfered to the oven should be the power drained by the resistance (maybe, minus a part transfered by conduction as other colleague pointed out). In regard with the transient, I guess the electrical transient will be much faster and the 1600W power drain will be stablished very fast. Best Regards, Gorka
