Total heat release rate  variation not expected

Hi Foamers,
I ran into a variation in the total heat release rate when running two similar cases that were not expected to me. Let me explain what I did. I was running the case oppositeBurningPanels (fireFoam solver) with minor modifications as below: 1. the domain size in the Y direction was shortened from 4.2m to 2m; 2. the block resolution in the Y direction was lowered from 124 to 60; 3. the refinement block in the Y direction was shortened from 2.4m to 1m; 4. the panels height was shortened from 2.4m to 1m. Running the case as above, after time=3.00s I got a total heat release rate of 252 J/s. Then, for the second case I removed the right panel (in the original case there are two opposed panels). That's all I did. Running the second case with this single change, after time=3.00s I got a total heat release rate of 45 J/s. This value is 18% of the value in the first case. My expectation was the value to be 50% of the original one. Is there any reason for the total heat release rate to be so small in the second case? Thanks, Paulo

Hi Paulo,
unfortunaltey I cannot answer your questions. However, I realised, that the tutorial case smallPoolFire3D is also wrong in terms of set to calculated heat release rate. When you have a look at the speed of fuel at the inlet (Uy=0.0.1 m/s), multiplied with the area of the burner inlet (A=0.04m2), the density relating to set pressure and temperature (rho=0.65 kg/m3) and the heat of combustion estimated by the solver itself (∆Hv=5E7 J/kg) then you'll end up with 13 kW. Postprocessing the volume integral of the dQ scalar variable gives an average of 24 kW (55 saved time steps). I would not mind this, if the values would be below and above the set HRR due to the nature of an unsteady LES simulation. However, they are allmost all above the set power. I am using OpenFOAM 2.0.x build 931a91d59a3a currently, but I'll have a look at the behaviour of the newest version. Cheers, Michael

Hi Lithos,
Thanks for your time in addressing my issue. Unfortunately I had to move away from OpenFOAM due to difficulties I had to represent the scenario I am studying. Best regards, Paulo

Dear Paulo,
thanks for your reply. In fact it seems to be a problem of the diffusive mass flow in addition to the convective one. Please have a look here http://www.cfdonline.com/Forums/ope...chemistry.html just to have all entries concerning fireFoam and the problems linked. Cheers, Michael

Dear Lithos,
Thanks for the info. I checked the link you referenced, and it surprises me that mabinty didn't have a feedback on such an important issue. Regards, Paulo

Dear all,
since I was asked how you could obtain the heat release rate: there are three ways I know currently: 1. you could calculate a volume integral of dQ (i.e. with Paraview) for your whole domain to obtain the overall heat release rate. This is not working if you have multiple sources of heat release and you want assess only one for sure. 2. you could put a monitor in you controlDict file before you carry out the calculation, i.e. Code:
functions ( volInts { type cellSource; functionObjectLibs ("libfieldFunctionObjects.so"); enabled true; outputControl timeStep; //outputTime; outputInterval 1; log true; //true; valueOutput false; source all; //cellZone; sourceName c0; operation volIntegrate; fields ( dQ ); } ); Hope this helps. Cheers, Michael

Dear all,
I have a question how to calculate total heat release (dQ integral over time) ?? In sprayEngineFoam solver i added the code: Info<< "Heat release [J]: " << fvc::domainIntegrate(dQ).value() * runTime.deltaTValue(). And when solver finishes i have to accumulate these values. Is it correct? Last edited by u22; July 30, 2014 at 05:28.

I guess its wrong. More correct is to sum dQ for all cells in domain. and then * dt and accumulate total heat release over all timesteps. What is dimension of dQ in dieselEngineFoam? in old versions of solver dQ=HRR/Cp AFAIK. not J/s..

My problem is HRRate is lower (cummulative heat release 120 J graphic picture 5) than what i expected. i use nheptan LHV= 44600 kJ/kg Added gas mass.................  7.96266 mg heat=fuelmass*LHV= 355.134636 J (what i expected) and unit section... i use foamextend.3.1 i suppose dQ calculated according to the below file /opt/foam/foamextend3.1/src/thermophysicalModels/chemistryModel/chemistryModel/ODEChemistryModel/ODEChemistryModel.C Code:
Line 576 template<class CompType, class ThermoType> Foam::tmp<Foam::volScalarField> Foam::ODEChemistryModel<CompType, ThermoType>::dQ() const { tmp<volScalarField> tdQ ( new volScalarField ( IOobject ( "dQ", this>mesh_.time().timeName(), this>mesh_, IOobject::NO_READ, IOobject::NO_WRITE, false ), this>mesh_, dimensionedScalar("dQ", dimEnergy/dimTime, 0.0), // J/s zeroGradientFvPatchScalarField::typeName ) ); if (this>chemistry_) { volScalarField& dQ = tdQ(); dQ.dimensionedInternalField() = this>mesh_.V()*Sh()(); } return tdQ; } Code:

Ayhan,
graphic picture 3 looks too "thin" for me. I mean peak value is OK, but decrease very fast. Perhaps not all of the nheptain evaporated and burns?

you are right all of the nheptane not evaporated and burns
i think i also have some problems about to write correct species amounts. so i write a new thread about that problem. http://www.cfdonline.com/Forums/ope...tml#post505976 Thanks for your reply Anthony, I really appreciate your help for HRRate... Best regards.

Hi everyone,
I am desperately trying to add the cumulative heat release vector in the logSummary file of my modified engineFoam solver. Indeed I am running a lot of engine (HCCI) simulations and I would like to have an easy access to the cumulativeHR in order to determine the combustion timing parameter (CA10,CA50 and CA90) for each simulations. This tread help me a lot as I am quite new to OpenFOAM and C++ programming. My first idea was to use runtime data processing with "#includeFunc Qdot" in my controlDict file. That allowed me to have a value in [J/m³ s] for each cell of my mesh (6500) at each write interval. However this is still not the value that I am interested in and I would prefer to have it directly in the logSummary file for easy post processing of the data using MatLab. Here is how I modified the logSummary.H file Code:
Info<< "Mean pressure:" << p.weightedAverage(mesh.V()).value() << endl; Info<< "Mean temperature:" << T.weightedAverage(mesh.V()).value() << endl; Info<< "Mean u':" << (sqrt((2.0/3.0)*turbulence>k()))().weightedAverage(mesh.V()).value() << endl; Info<< "Cumulative Heat release [J] : " << cummulative_sum (gSum(chemistry.dQ()())* runTime.deltaTValue() ) << endl; logSummaryFile << runTime.theta() << tab << p.weightedAverage(mesh.V()).value() << tab << T.weightedAverage(mesh.V()).value() << tab << (sqrt((2.0/3.0)*turbulence>k()))().weightedAverage(mesh.V()).value() << tab << cummulative_sum (gSum(chemistry.dQ()())* runTime.deltaTValue() ) << endl; Code:
Info<< "Total cylinder mass: " << fvc::domainIntegrate(rho).value() << endl; //Info<< "Total fuel mass: " // << fvc::domainIntegrate(rho*compostion.ft()).value() << endl; OFstream logSummaryFile ( runTime.path()/("logSummary." + runTime.timeName() + ".dat") ); logSummaryFile << "# CA" << " p" << " T" << " u'" << " Cumulative HRR"<< endl; Code:
