INSADEnergyAmbientConvection

This object adds a term of the incompressible energy equation of the form where is based on the Real alpha parameter set by the user and is similarly set through the Real T_ambient parameter. This term addition is meant to represent a volumetric approximation of an energy exchange between an external heat exchanger or some other ambient surrounding heat source/sink.

Computes a heat source/sink due to convection from ambient surroundings.

Input Parameters

    Options:

    Description:The heat transfer coefficient from the ambient surroundings

  • variableThe name of the variable that this Kernel operates on

    C++ Type:NonlinearVariableName

    Options:

    Description:The name of the variable that this Kernel operates on

Required Parameters

  • blockThe list of block ids (SubdomainID) that this object will be applied

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:The list of block ids (SubdomainID) that this object will be applied

  • displacementsThe displacements

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:The displacements

Optional Parameters

  • control_tagsAdds user-defined labels for accessing object parameters via control logic.

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:Adds user-defined labels for accessing object parameters via control logic.

  • diag_save_inThe name of auxiliary variables to save this Kernel's diagonal Jacobian contributions to. Everything about that variable must match everything about this variable (the type, what blocks it's on, etc.)

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:The name of auxiliary variables to save this Kernel's diagonal Jacobian contributions to. Everything about that variable must match everything about this variable (the type, what blocks it's on, etc.)

  • enableTrueSet the enabled status of the MooseObject.

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Set the enabled status of the MooseObject.

  • implicitTrueDetermines whether this object is calculated using an implicit or explicit form

    Default:True

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Determines whether this object is calculated using an implicit or explicit form

  • save_inThe name of auxiliary variables to save this Kernel's residual contributions to. Everything about that variable must match everything about this variable (the type, what blocks it's on, etc.)

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:The name of auxiliary variables to save this Kernel's residual contributions to. Everything about that variable must match everything about this variable (the type, what blocks it's on, etc.)

  • seed0The seed for the master random number generator

    Default:0

    C++ Type:unsigned int

    Options:

    Description:The seed for the master random number generator

  • use_displaced_meshFalseWhether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

    Default:False

    C++ Type:bool

    Options:

    Description:Whether or not this object should use the displaced mesh for computation. Note that in the case this is true but no displacements are provided in the Mesh block the undisplaced mesh will still be used.

    C++ Type:std::vector

    Options:

    Description:The extra tags for the vectors this Kernel should fill

  • matrix_tagssystemThe tag for the matrices this Kernel should fill

    Default:system

    C++ Type:MultiMooseEnum

    Options:nontime system

    Description:The tag for the matrices this Kernel should fill

  • vector_tagsnontimeThe tag for the vectors this Kernel should fill
