Common functions for use in temperature coupled boundaries. For now only
Common functions for use in temperature coupled boundaries.
kappa() : heat conduction at patch. Gets supplied how to lookup/calculate
kappa:
For now only provides the following methods:
- kappa() : heat conduction at patch. Gets supplied how to lookup/calculate
'kappa':
- 'lookup' : lookup volScalarField (or volSymmTensorField) with name
- 'fluidThermo' : use fluidThermo and default compressible::turbulenceModel
to calculate kappa
defined in 'kappaName'
- 'fluidThermo' : use fluidThermo and default
compressible::turbulenceModel to calculate kappa
- 'solidThermo' : use solidThermo kappa()
- 'directionalSolidThermo': uses look up for volSymmTensorField for
transformed kappa vector. Named 'Anialpha' in solid solver
transformed kappa vector. Field name definable in 'alphaAniName',
named 'Anialpha' in solid solver by default
