Time step using multiple Moving Heat Fluxes

    • Mikel_Ortiz


      I am working with a thermal model where I am using multiple Moving Heat Fluxes and I am having problems to obtain an acceptable time step for the calculation.

      The image below represent an example using 600 Moving Heat Fluxes. My problem comes when I enter a value higer than 999 in the Number of Segments to define the time step for the calculation. If I enter 999 in the box of numer of Segment, the time step generarted is correct (24.98/999). However, if I enter a value higher than 999, the solver only takes the first 3 digits to calculate the time step. That is, in the example below it makes a segmentation of time using 249 instead of 24980 (29,98/249=0.12s).

      To explore more on why this issue is taking place you will need to check the source code of the ACT.
