Default natural convection
Posts: n/a
i will simulate a natural convection by the diffrence of heat and concentration with star-cd, as you know, under natural convection, the energe or mass and momentum conversition equation must be caculated at the same time because of the couple of temperature and velocity , until now i don't know how to make subrutine and how to match it with star-cd. if someone know about this suject or did this invovled work, please contect me or tell me about it without hesitate. thank you!

Why do you think that you need user coding for running a natural convection case? It should run without for most of the cases.

I agree with Joern. You should define for your material in the folder Thermophysical models & properties -> Liquid & Gases -> Molecular Properties the density to vary according to the isobaric model (Boussinesq approximation) or have density at least as function of temperature (Ideal-f(T)). Then you will have the buoyancy effects you want to simulate (provided that you have switched the gravity on).
