I have this setup shown belowMay 7, 2021 at 2:15 pmKarthik RAdministratorHi If you estimate the surface integral of the Total Surface Heat Flux, you should be able to obtain the net heat crossing these surfaces.
May 7, 2021 at 3:27 pmKarthikkurinjiSubscriberDear Karthik I tried that. But it shows it as zero. Moreover, I could not create the planes in the FLUENT tab. I can only create these in CFD-Post, but there again, I don't know how to find it because there is no Total heat flux in the function calculator. I have attached images of the panels here for a better understanding.
Thanks again Karthik
May 7, 2021 at 3:43 pmRobAnsys EmployeeIn Fluent use iso-surfaces of mesh and select the fluid region when you create the surface. Repeat for the solid surface. You can then see the flux (suspect it's not available) but you will get the temperature values (mass weighted mean) along with flow rate to estimate the energy in the fluid and solid zones at each position.
May 8, 2021 at 1:14 amKarthikkurinjiSubscriberHi Rob Thanks for introducing iso-surfaces. I did try that. I created an Iso-surface at the inlet itself. I extracted the mass-weighted average of the static temperature and also the mass flow rate. The values were :
T_inlet = 300.09743 K
m_dot = 0.003181 Kg/s
Cp_water = 4000 J/KgK ( i have manually input it as 4000 in the material property)
Q_dot = m_dot x Cp x Delta_T ( In my case, 12.8 J/Ks x Delta_T)
Delta_T is the problem area.
As you can see in the below-attached image(also attached the iso-surface values attained), I have the heat transfer at the inlet is 23.35 W. I do not understand how it can be that value.
