Re: Conjugate Heat Transfer [Navier-Stokes + Heat in Solid]

I wanted to follow-up on my own post, in-case someone else comes along and has a similar problem. The coupling of the NS and heat equation for natural convection in Elmer is correct in the previous sif file, as well as the coupling to solve for the heat transfer in the solid. The issue arises in my ...

Re: Elmer module for Salomé

Can someone link the Salome-Elmer plug-in so I can try to get it working?

Documentation would also be helpful...

Conjugate Heat Transfer [Navier-Stokes + Heat in Solid]

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me understand the proper way to setup a conjugate heat transfer problem. I have run a few Navier-Stokes (NS) problems with Elmer, and feel pretty confident about getting consistent results, even with thermally driven flow. The issue arises when I try to ex...

Re: Elmer8 gives zero results for electric field

Hi Matthais, It is an open-air capacitor. I am doing explorations for electrostatic precipitators and air filtration, but I wanted to simulate a test case I can benchmark against (a simple open-air copper plate capacitor of reasonable size and easily measurable capacitance). So I should use a couple...

Re: Using launchpad to install Elmer in Ubuntu 16.04

Hey Shubham,

What do you get when you

Code: Select all

sudo apt-cache search elmerfem-csc
?

Also, are you sure you did a

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
before trying to install the package?

Re: Elmer8 gives zero results for electric field

Hey Matthais, 1.) I am accustomed to needing an infinite boundary from other EM-FEM software I have used (ANSYS) that become numerically unstable without it. If you think the problem is well posed without it, I can give it a try, but I don't imagine that is the source of my problems. 2.) I wasn't su...

Re: Elmer8 gives zero results for electric field

Hello! I just wanted to check if this is still an issue in Elmer 8.3? I am doing some simple 2D explorations with open air capacitive plates, and so far the results look good (as in, they make good plots). However I am concerned that when running simply the electrostatic module (with capacitive solv...
