Volume Expansion#

Volume Expansion = CONSTANT <float> [1/T]

Description / Usage#

This card is used to specify the model for the coefficient of volume expansion in the energy equation. This property is required for the BOUSS option on the Navier-Stokes Source card. Definitions of the input parameters are as follows:


Name of the model for a constant volume-expansion coefficient.

  • <float> - the value of the volume expansion coefficient.


The following is a sample input card:

Volume Expansion = CONSTANT 1.

Technical Discussion#

Warning: Please be careful that the Species Volume Expansion card is set appropriately. If the BOUSS or BOUSSINESQ model is turned on on the Navier- Stokes Source card, then both thermal and species volume expansion effects are included if the coefficients are nonzero. .
