Two metal wall model are available: MetalWall and MetalWallL.
Model MetalWall represents a discretized 1-dimentional tube of solid material. The assumptions for this model are:
- Wall thermal resistance is neglected (i.e. No temperature gradient in the wall)
- Longitudinal thermal energy conduction is neglected
- Dynamic thermal energy capacity is accounted for.
In the Initialization tab the following options are availabe:
- steadystate_T_wall: If it sets to true, the derivative of temperature is sets to zero during Initialization
Model MetalWallL represents a lumped tube of solid material. The assumptions and options of the model are the same as the MetalWall model.
