 December 11, 2009, 01:07 Plot a graph of velocity #1 New Member   wanie Join Date: Nov 2009 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 16 Hi! I'm new to CFD. I am doing Human Tracheobronchial Airways Flow Model to identify the hotspots for particle deposition in the lungs. I have a problem on how to plot a graph of velocity against time from our iteration in excel. I ask someone about this and he said that I must identify the main locations to extract velocity data (e.g: create point or surface) using FLUENT coordinate system. But I still do not understand this part and how to do it. One more, there seems to be some problems with my iteration as it reads "turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio of 1.000000e+005 in 62 cells". There might be some problems in my boundary conditions or conflict with my UDF code. This is my parameter I set for boundary condition:- 1) Inlet- inlet velocity -velocity magnitude = 1 m/s -turbulent intensity = 1 % -Hydraulic diameter = 0.2 m 2) Outlet- pressure outlet -gauge pressure = 0 -backflow turbulent intensity = 1 % -backflow hydraulic diameter = 0.2 m 3) Wall -no slip condition -roughness height = 0 -roughness constant = 0.5 and this is my C code for unsteady flow:- #include "udf.h" DEFINE_PROFILE(sin_inlet_velocity, thread, position) { real x[ND_ND]; /* Position vector */ real y; face_t f; real t = CURRENT_TIME; /* Current time of simulation */ begin_f_loop(f, thread) /* Loops over faces in thread */ { F_CENTROID(x,f,thread); /* Gets centroid of face f */ y = x[1]; t=3; F_PROFILE(f, thread, position) = 1.84*sin(1.0472*t); /* Profile 1 */ //else (t>=3) //F_PROFILE(f, thread, position) = 1.84*sin(1.0472*t); /* Profile 2 */ } end_f_loop(f, thread) } I really need someone to help me ASAP. Thanks... Wanie

However for velocity do you want to monitor velocity at one point or line or surface? About viscosity ratio limit, in limit (i think it is in define menu) increase max limit for this case. i.e. to 1e10. May be it works. Best regards Ata

Do you know how? i.e. you can do this via iso-surface. Second you must define an animation. If you do not how, tell me to explain it for you. Absolutely you can find it in users manual. Regards Ata

Thanks in advance.
