Re: Elmersolver crashes when Porous Media is activated

Hi! I remember, there was nice conversation with you a year ago :D May be now I also can help you. I made a simple 2D GUI case for you (see in Mesh_1 folder), where massive composite casing of A356 alloy is crystallizing. Elmer model manual says that for porous medium flow resistivity is to be speci...

Save materials - GUI definition

Hi Elmer team!
I have made savematerials.xml.
Please check it and if it's OK, I'll be happy to see it in new Elmer release.

Re: Beginner's troubles

Hi! First issue: You can scale the mesh in ElmerGUI, just paste in Model-->Setup-->Simulation-->Free Text following instruction Coordinate Scaling = 0.001 Second issue: Heat flux q=k*dT/dn is in W/m² (Eqn. 1.18 in Models Manual). Anyway, you can use any unit system. But you have to rescale all the m...

Re: Heat simulation mesh lvl3 cylinder shape issue

Hi! Unfortunately I was not able to solve with Mesh Levels = 3 on my computer due to lack of memory (as Peter said). But I suppose,it's the mesh issue. IMHO: In the thin layers of 0.04 and 0.07 mm thickness the elements has wary sharp angles in Temp. gradient direction. After 3 splitting operations ...

I wish to upload the attachment here, but the mesh file size has exceeds the maximum allowed upload size.
Is there any ways for me to send you the file?
Thank you.

Regards,

You can simply apload your case to some cloud like Dropbox or something else and share the URL/

Re: Heat simulation mesh lvl3 cylinder shape issue

Hi!
I guess, in order to help you, we need the SIF file and the mesh, you used.

Re: 3-Dimensional Natural Convection

Hi!
I just have look at SIF. I don't try to run the case.
One thing, I've spotted is:

Code: Select all

  Variable = Flow Solution[Velocity:2 Pressure:1]
In 3D case it should be

Code: Select all

  Variable = Flow Solution[Velocity:3 Pressure:1]
in order to initialize three components of Velocity vector.
Good luck! ;)

Re: Failed convergence tolerances

Yor're welcome Anil ;) In addition to previous post I'd like to share transient version of sif. Quite funny results obtained. First the flow moves forward and symmetrically. I thought previous steady simulation is wrong... But after thinking some time the flow decides where to go. With different set...

Re: Failed convergence tolerances

Hi, dear Cristobal! In incompressible flow inlet and outlet velocities have to be equal. That is not observed on specified picture. So, we have to do something. I played around with Cristobal's reactor and I want to share the results. I have prepared a non-GUI case and obtained the results. First of...
