PERFORATED PIPE AS POROUS JUMP AND EWF

    • Amir

      Hello, I am modeling a perforated pipe which is burried under soil. Flow is going to pass through the pipe and due to pipe and soil being at lower temperature it is going to condense and cause the temperature of soil to increase. For condensation we are using EWF for the pipe, and soil is going to be modeled as porous zone. My question is that is it prefered/possible to model the pipe as porous jump in this model? [since meshing a perforated pipe comes with some challenges]. The pipe is not perforated everywhere and mainly the horizontal part of it [in the attached image] has holes in it.

      Hello, 

      the porous jump BC can be used for internal-type boundaries within a fluid or at fluid-solid interfaces (shadow pairs). I do not see this in your figure, are you doing system coupling to include the soil?

        The pipe is burried under soil and the soil domain is not included in this image.
