I've attached the required files
going back to some of my original questions, what specifically are you concerned about regarding the data?
what was the reason your simulation completed, was it because of the goals?
The aim of the work (thesis) is to simulate the behaviour of the three resistences, in particular to find the hottest area, calculate the temperature distribution and heat exchange coefficient. That's why I set the goals as max temperature on every resistance. the other goal is to control the stedy state on the simulation.
To validate the model I'm going to measure the themperature of the real reistance in 20 points by termocouple. The problem is that I will do the test as soon as possible but actually I don't have any data. I know that is quite difficult to say if a model works or not without any real data,but I would like to build as reasonable good as possible model in SWFS.
ok. but what is the concern with your results?
if you check the goal data you can see that the difference between max and min temperature (the delta) over the last 94 iteration of the solid temperature is more than che criterion. But if you try to calculate the delta on the last 94 iteration of the outlet bulk average temperature, you can see that it's right. So I don't know what is the right value of the solid temperature...this is what I'm concerned on.
I have another question, how can I find the right mesh "convergence"? do you think that the simple impovement of the mesh level(with default settings and narrow channel enabled) can carry to the convergence of successive result or is better way to work on initial mesh settings to achieve this target? I.e. use narrow channel refinement only where is needed i.e. oround the resistance instead of let it works around every object
I see what you mean. Create a rest file and run it to confirm other problems report properly.
If they do, great!
Now rerun your model and see if the results come back the same or different.
From there I would need to see the file to troubleshoot further.
Regarding your other question, there is no right answer. The best mesh is the one that gives you accurate results based on testing or hand calcs. Chicken and the egg baiscally.
I would recommend looking at the tutorial on meshing and the solving eng problems doc on recommended meshing practices. There are several articles in the kb as well.
It's like the delta is he diff between value and average. What version and sp are you using?
I use SW student edition 2012-13 64bit, so unfortunately I can't see the kb because full access is required to access. I dont know what sp is my SW.
Sorry but I don't understand the meaning of "Create a rest file and run it to confirm other problems report properly", please can you explain in other word? Is rest file another SW file like a copy of the original model?
And I don't understand your last message, what are you referred?
Sorry but I'm not very skilled on english, tanks
Student is usually sp 2.
Rest should have been test.
If you look at the data, delta equals the value (first column) minus average (second column). Not correct based on the definition but helps understand where the number comes from.
In the end, the value is what you should care about if the results are converged. If you are concerned, rub the analysis longer and stop it manually when you feel the have flattened out more.
ok, now is more clear!
I'll try to do what you suggest.
