bulk mean temperatureHi
I want to find bulk mean temperature of fluid flowing through a heated pipe. The Tm, bulk mean temperature of the fluid (sum[TxUxA]/sum[UxA]) is to be found at different cross-section of the pipe. Is there any bulit in option in PHOENICS for this? If it is to be found by user coding, please give the guidance. With regards Ananta |

first you need to fix the sections where u want to calculate your mean bulk temperature
second u need to write your bulk mean temperature correctly (exemple: sum[T(i,j)xU(i,j)xA(k)]/sum[U(ij)xA(k)])) where ijk are the nodes indices(if you are working in 3D) then you have to find the position of your temperature and velocity in the F file(file where all variables stored) and last insert your equation in ground.for file after the time loop and write the result in a new file. hope this helps |

Thanks !Thanks !
I have done it in the same way you have suggested, but through 'Inform'. It is working nicely. Thanks a lot ! bye Ananta |
