Defining variable fluid inlet temperature in Fluent

      Hello all,

      I'm running a transient simulation in Fluent and I want to define a non-constant fluid inlet temperature.

      My inlet temperature depends on the temperature of a cell zone and I know what the inlet temperature should be at different temperatures of that cell zone. I need Fluent to interpolate the inlet temperature between the ranges and not change abruptly (which I could even do manually).

      For example,

      At 650°C of cell zone, inlet temperature = 100°C,
      At 600°C of cell zone, inlet temperature = 80°C,
      At 500!C of cell zone, inlet temperature = 55°C,

      ...and so on.


      Thank you!

      Hi,

      I recommend creating a UDF for inlet temperature.

      For more details, please refer to fluent customization manual: 1.3. Defining Your UDF Using DEFINE Macros (ansys.com)

      If you are not able to access the link, please refer to this forum discussion: Using Help with links (ansys.com)

      Thank you
