Time-Dependent Analysis

Dear Flow Simulation Forum Members,

 

I have read the help files and am not sure if I am setting up my problem correctly.   My problem is as follows:

 

I want to pulse a surface heat source; on for 3 seconds and off for 7 seconds.  I want to simulate one hour of operation or until the solid temperature has reached steady state.

 

I have set up the problem as follows:

 

General Settings:

      Time Dependent: checked

 

Calculation Control Options:

     Finish Tab:

           Finish Conditions:

                Maximum Physical Time:

                     Value=3600s

 

Heat Sources:

     Surface Source:

           Toggle:

                Dependency: f(x)

                    Dependency type: F(time) - table

                         Table of values:

                              value t          Toggle

                                   0 s          On

                                   3 s          Off

                                   10 s        On

 

Does this correctly simulate the pulsing of my surface source 3s on, 7s off, for 1 hour?

 

Thank you,

Jerry
