Hello everyone,

I have simulated the water flowing through a pipe with constant heat flux at the wall using OpenFOAM, and I can obtain the temperature and volicity of the fluid. But how can I get the wall temperature since there is only one fluid computational domain?

Could you please give me some hints? Thank you in advance!

Best regards,
Qinh

Do you mean in paraview? Then you have to selected the corresponding wall face in the box "Mesh Regions" before loading the case.

Warning : on surface, the paraview value can be interpolated value from the internal field. You can open the data file and see if there is value for your patch or if there is only a boundary condition. If there is only a boundary condition (zeroGradient for example), paraview will give interpolated value of the internal field.

Hi Herb and Bonamy,

Thank you for your reply. I want to obtain the temperatuere of the wall which implement constant heat flux to the fluid domain. However, in ParaView, I will get the temperature of the fluid boundary if I select the boundary face. So how can I get the wall temperature if there is a fixedGradient boundary condition ?

Do you have try to open a result temperature field file to see if there is data in the boundary part?
If it is just write something like following (for result at no zero time step), it is impossible to have the field on the wall (without interpolation).
wall
{
type fixedGradient;
gradient uniform 60;
}

Hello Bonamy,

The temperature file only includes the fluid domain temperature. However, in this case, the wall temperature is used during the calculation process. So how can I obtain the wall temperature ? Or how to interpolate the value from the internal field in ParaView ? Thank you in advance!

1) To know exactly what the openfoam solver performs, you must found the source files corresponding to your boundary condition and try to understand...

2) To have an interpolated value of the field on the patch with paraview, in paraview you click in the "Mesh Regions" box (at the bottom right) on the patch name (for example wall if it is the name of your patch) and you unselect the internalMesh. Next you click "Apply" and you will see onlly the patch with the value of the field on the patch. The value will be an interpolated value (interpolated by paraview and not openfoam...)

How can I plot the wall temperature curves along the pipe after visualizing the wall surface?
