TAITherm_Model buildup_Cylinder

TAITherm Model Buildup Introduction: TAITherm has some basic geometry creation options, which helps the users to create and manipulate the geometries. Objective: To create pipe geometry in TAITherm tool. Methodology: The pipe geometry can be modelled using a Cylinder Primitive. * Under the _Create sub tab _select the Cylinder Primitive. * Enter the Cylinder Dimensions: Length = ‘n’ inches and Diameter = ‘n’ inch. * Enter the Number of Elements along both the Length and Width: Alon...

Fluid Stream Modelling

TAITherm- Fluid Streams Modelling Introduction : Fluid streams can be used as parts of large fluid system models via advection links to other fluid parts or streams. Mainly used in CFD-Thermal calculation of Exhaust pipes etc. _ Fig :1.Model Feeder Pipe_ Creation of Fluid Streams 1. Select the Add Part button and enter the new part name “Fluid Stream”. 2. Select {Calculated} as the Temperature Type (this is the default) and [Fluid Stream] as the Part Type. 3. Engine Oil, Unused (Liqui...

Fluid node modelling

TAITherm - Fluid node modelling: Fluid Node: A fluid node is a geometry-less TAITherm part type which represents the bulk properties of a specified volume of liquid, whose temperature can be assigned or calculated. Fluid nodes can be linked to parts with geometry to model the transfer of heat between a convective liquid and the part surface(s) with which it makes contact. Fig: 1. Model without Fluid node Fig: 2. Thermal analysis w/o convection node Fluid Node modelling: 1. Fluid n...
