1 D-1 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Appendix D Profile Boundary Conditions Introduction to CFX

2 Profile Boundary Conditions D-2 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual Rather than using constant values of variables (velocity, pressure, temperature, etc), it is more accurate to use experimental results and create profile boundary conditions based on interpolation of values from data files Another option is to create a profile boundary from results at some location in a previous simulation Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre Profile Boundary Conditions

3 D-3 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre Inlet Velocity Outside Temperature Pressure Profile Relative Pressure Relative Static Pressure Static Temperature Stationary Frame Total Temperature Total Temperature User Defined Variables How to Use

4 Profile Boundary Conditions D-4 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual Example of the BC file from CFD-Post. The information in the colour boxes is needed and will be read automatically by CFX-Pre Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre How to Use

5 Profile Boundary Conditions D-5 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual Initialize (read in) the profile in CFX-Pre. Do this by selecting Tools>Initialize Profile Data and selecting the profile file. You can load multiple profile files and each file can be applied in more than one location Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre How to Use

6 Profile Boundary Conditions D-6 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual Assign the profile data to a boundary condition Select the appropriate profile from the drop-down list, then click Generate Values Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre How to Use

7 Profile Boundary Conditions D-7 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual The Boundary Details panel will be modified to use the profile data These changes will not be applied unless you click Apply Tip: you can shift a profile by modifying the x, y, z values passed into the function, e.g. – in1.Velocity u(x+10[m],y,z) Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre How to Use

8 Profile Boundary Conditions D-8 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual Boundary conditions can be visualized in CFX-Pre You can create a Boundary Contour or a Boundary Vector plot of the profile data Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre How to Use

9 Profile Boundary Conditions D-9 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual CFX-Solver CFX-Pre CFD-Post.def &.csv. res The profile data is read into the CFX-Solver each time the solver is started / restarted (i.e. the profile file can be edited between solver runs without returning to CFX-Pre Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre How to Use

10 Profile Boundary Conditions D-10 ANSYS, Inc. Proprietary © 2009 ANSYS, Inc. All rights reserved. April 28, 2009 Inventory # Training Manual CFX-Solver CFX-Pre CFD-Post.def &.csv.res (including.csv data) Profile Data File Results File from First Simulation Definition File for Second Simulation CFD- Post CFX- Pre.out (includes.csv data if profile data is less than 16 kB) All profile data is written to the results file and can be extracted using the command line utility cfx5dfile, described in the Help Files How to Use
