x-t plot foe shock wave problem in Ansys Fluent

      Hi All,

      I have one problem with compressible flow related to the micro-shock tube and DPM. I have to plot the x-t diagrams by doing post-processing. I need help obtaining these plots. Please advise me on how to obtain them in Ansys post-processing.

      If it is impossible to obtain in Ansys post-processing, then which post-processing software do I have to use?

      Please can you post an example of what you're after?  The contour data will show the flow results, and may be a better option?

      OK, you'll need to review how point and line monitors are set up using Report Definitions and take data from Fluent to generate the plots.

      I don't find the information you provided helpful. Please elaborate or provide some sources to understand

      They're covered in the tutorials, click on Help in Fluent and you should find them.

      How to show the coordinate frame as shown in the figure below, i.e., the x-axis and y-axis in the Ansys Post processing?

      You can't in Fluent, check Ensight, otherwise you may need to create the scale and then combine the images.

      I am using the DPM model to inject the particles. I selected “group type” and “no. of stream= 20.” and my study is “transient”. A micro-shock tube is used, and the driver section is patched with a high-pressure gas and the driven section is patched with a gas at atmospheric pressure. 

       

      I am facing a problem: “Whenever I run the simulation at the same condition, in each simulation, the particle velocity at the nozzle exit is different, and the particle is reaching at a different time at the nozzle exit.” 

      Also, in each simulation, the message in the console is " the reverse flow on 168 faces of pressure outlet-12." appearing after every time step.

      Why is it so?

      As I have no idea what the results or convergence look like it's a little difficult to comment. Please look through what you're doing carefully, then ask your question and include sufficient information for someone to have a chance of understanding.
