Transient FSI – Problem with the effect of convection

    • Juan Martín Morrone


      I am working with the Transient-Thermal and CFX codes in a FSI Two Way simulation. It is about a braking simulation of a brake rotor. Rotor speed decreases over time as does the incoming heat flow to this. I have created the FSI and the simulation runs correctly.The problem is the following: there is no improvement in convection heat transfer due to rotor movement. I have noticed this because there is no difference between the temperature field of the FSI two way simulation and the temperature field of a normal Transient thermal.

      Do I have to create a convection boundary condition in the Mechanical? Because I believe that the FSI is enough. I attach a picture of the Mechanical setup.
