I have run a flow simulation study on a flat plate heat exchanger and the solver comes up with an error saying that there are vortices crossing an inlet.
It also says the heat transfer rate goal is invalid.
How can i fix these matters as the heat transfer rate is needed for comparison against hand calculations for a report.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
vortex crossing an inlet > tells me you need to extend your inlet and outlet, this is covered well in the solidworks kb.
and heat transfer rate goal tell me you have it applied on a face that isn't valid for that parameter. IE flow doesn't see it or it isn't between fluid and solid.
