Default ask a question about Fixed Flux Boundary Condition
Posts: n/a
Hello everyone.

When I read polis about Fixed Flux Boundary Condition,I meet a problem.In the polis,it says that V should be setted to source/C.In the latter example, Heat source in block:-10 MW/m**3,then PATCH(HEATEDBL,VOLUME,NX/4+1,3*NX/4,NY/4+1,3*NY/4,1,1,1,1) COVAL(HEATEDBL,TEM1,FIXFLU,1.0E7) I find V=1.0e7 rather than 1.0e7/fixflu.Does phoenics change it automatically? Another question, does VOlUME mentioned in the PATCH represent the Volume of a cell?

Thank you. waiting for your answers.

Hello Mahe, Sources with Fixflu have a special treatment, they are written as:

Sphi = Fixflu * (Val /Fixflu - Phi) in such a way that the final source introdude in the equations is: Sphi = Val - Fixflu * PHI (there is an error of the order of fixflu*phi (fixflu=1.e-10). This done automatically and only for Fixflu. If one wants to do the same thing with a smaller coefficient, he needs to divide the value he wants to impose by the coefficient. Hope this help, Jalil
