Question about CVD model
Hello everyone when I use CVD model,I find I can't set the bouyancy model to Boussinesq.However,In CVD model,energy eqution is solved defaultly.And I think in my problem the temperature gradient is the main reason which cause the bouyancy.Could anyone tell why? Thank you very much

Re: Question about CVD model
Dear Mahe, You can change the energy equation to solve for temperature instead of Enthalpy and then set your Boussinesq model if you want. Also, please review the CVD tutorials for additional information.

Best Wishes, Allen
