Background

FLUENT solvers are based on the

Domain is discretized into a control volume finite set of control volumes or cells. General conservation (transport) equation for mass, momentum, energy, etc.,

dV + V dA = dA + V S dV t V A A

unsteady convection diffusion generation

Fluid region of pipe flow discretized into finite set of control volumes (mesh).

are discretized into algebraic equations. All equations are solved to render flow field.

Problem Identification and Pre-Processing 1. Define your modeling goals. 2. Identify the domain you will model. 3. Design and create the grid. Solver Execution 4. Set up the numerical model. 5. Compute and monitor the solution. Post-Processing 6. Examine the results. 7. Consider revisions to the model.

A3

What results are you looking for, and how will they be used? What physical models will need to be included in your analysis?

Multiphase?

What degree of accuracy is required? How quickly do you need the results? Do you require a unique modeling capability?

User-defined subroutines (written in FORTRAN) in FLUENT 4.5 User-defined functions (written in C) in FLUENT 5

A4

How will you isolate a piece of the complete physical system? Where will the computational domain begin and end? What boundary conditions are needed? Can the problem be simplified to 2D?

A5

Should you use a quad/hex grid, a tri/tet grid, a hybrid grid, or a nonconformal grid? What degree of grid resolution is required in each region of the domain? Can you take advantage of MixSim or IcePak? Will you use adaption to add resolution? How many cells are required for the problem? triangle Do you have sufficient computer memory?

tetrahedron hexahedron

pyramid

prism or wedge

For a given problem, you will need to:

Select appropriate physical models.

Turbulence, combustion, multiphase, etc.

Fluid Solid Mixture

Prescribe operating conditions. Prescribe boundary conditions at all boundary zones. Provide an initial solution. Set up solver controls. Set up convergence monitors.

A10

The discretized conservation equations are solved iteratively.

A number of iterations are usually required to reach a converged solution.

Changes in solution variables from one iteration to the next are negligible.

Residuals provide a mechanism to help monitor this trend.

Appropriateness and accuracy of the physical models. Grid resolution and independence Problem setup

A converged and grid-independent solution on a well-posed problem will provide useful engineering results!

A11 Fluent Inc. 17-Sep-05

Examine the results to review solution and to extract useful engineering data. Visualization can be used to answer such questions as:

What is the overall flow pattern? Is there separation? Where do shocks, shear layers, etc. form? Are key flow features being resolved? Are physical models and boundary conditions appropriate? Are there local convergence problems?

Lift and drag Average heat transfer coefficients Surface-averaged quantities

A12 Fluent Inc. 17-Sep-05

Graphical tools

Grid, contour, and vector plots Pathline and particle trajectory plots XY plots Animations

Flux balances Surface and volume integrals and averages Forces and moments

A13

Are physical models appropriate?

Is flow turbulent? Is flow unsteady? Are there compressibility effects? Are there 3D effects?

Is the computational domain large enough? Are boundary conditions appropriate? Are boundary values reasonable?

Is grid adequate?

Can grid be adapted to improve results? Does solution change significantly with adaption, or is the solution grid independent? Does boundary resolution need to be improved?

FLUENT DEMO

Startup Gambit

load database define boundary zones export mesh

Startup Fluent

GUI Problem Setup Solve Post-Processing

A16

Basic Unix commands:

pwd - prints the name current working directory

Your home directory is home/fluent/.

ls - lists the files in the current directory cd - change working directories (cd .. to go up one directory).

The environment variable $TRAINPATH contains a shortcut to the directory where training files are stored. For example: cp $TRAINPATH/fluent5.x/tut/elbow/elbow.msh . will copy the mesh file for the first example problem into your current working directory. To start Fluent 5: % fluent 2d & To start Fluent 4.5: % fluent -r4.5 &

PC users will find tutorials under c:\Fluent.Inc\fluent5.x\ tut\. This directory is write-protected. Save files to your home directory, c:\users\fluent\. Fluent can be started from the command prompt or from the start menu:

!Note: It is recommended that you restart Fluent for each tutorial for both Unix and NT systems to avoid mixing solver settings from different tutorials.
