Default How to add fire source in STAR-CD??
Posts: n/a
I'm a new user of STAR-CD. Now I have a very simple questions: how to add a fire source (heat soure) into the program? I have doing such cases with CFX and the software developed by myself. It just add a heat source in the enthalpy equation.But I don't know how to add it in STAR-cd. Could somebody help me?

Thanks a lot!

hi raymond,

you have to activate the sorent.f user-subroutine with:

starguide: -> analysis controls -> other controls -> miscellaneous controls -> click on the enthalpy button

that activates the user subroutine! before pressing the 'define user coding' button (it writes a sample file called sorent.f into the subdirectory ufile) you have to launch the command 'ufiles' in your local directory. this command generates the directory ufile and copies two files ( and usrdat.incī) into it.

in sorent.f you can define a volumetric heat source for a special cell type, for example. you can also include your own fortran-code there. I do that for my heat exchanger simulations in HVAC's and it works fine.

hope this helps,
