Computing convective heat loss without air

Hi, I came across a simulation built in simscale using calculix to compute a thermal analysis on a PCB: https://www.simscale.com/projects/ahmedhussain18/pcb_-_transient_thermal_analysis_1/ Convective heat loss is computed in this model without computing Navier-Stokes. Instead one has to specify on w...

Re: from freecad .fcstd format to Elmer

Also consider to use the built in Calculix thermomechanical solver (displacement caused by the temp-change are also computed) for comparison. With Calculix in FreeCAD the results look like Screenshot from 2017-11-10 18-18-23.png And here the results computed using Elmer compined with FreeCAD: Screen...

Re: from freecad .fcstd format to Elmer

I used the unstable 0.17 version of FreeCAD for the shown example (daily ppa on ubuntu; or use the https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.17_pre if you are on windows) If you want to construct and mesh you plate in FreeCAD and do the model set-up and simulation in ElmerGUI here is a short...

Re: from freecad .fcstd format to Elmer

Unfortunately, the file is still in the native .fcstd format Hi Gary, You can use FreeCAD to define all groups in the mesh and simply export your (with-freecad-generated) GMSH mesh as .unv and import it into ElmerGui after transferring it with ElmerGrid. Alternatively, you can use the current devel...

Re: Segmentation fault (core dumped) on 3D Navier-Stokes

I had a quick look. Thanks you are completely right with all the parameters... could figure it out by myself but did not show the results here. Thought its better to keep it focused on the bubbles setting. I almost posted simultaneous the outcome here... http://www.elmerfem.org/forum/viewtopic.php?...

Re: Integrating Elmer into FreeCAD FEM workbench

Let me post here some preliminary results produced with the work of Markus, since the GSoC is almost over. See also https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=22576 and https://github.com/drhooves/FreeCAD/tree/femnewsolver By using Elmer it is now also possible to simulate fluid flow combined...

Hi Peter,
Setting bubbles and stabilize both to True leads to the segmentation fault above.
Could you implement a query and warn the user.

Re: Segmentation fault (core dumped) on 3D Navier-Stokes

OK I found the problem for the Seg-fault:
I removed :

Code: Select all

Stabilize = True
Stabilization Method = String Stabilized
But the model is still not convergent.
Thanks in advance,
Wil
