Material Properties

  • Constant or variable fluid properties including temperature and composition dependence (data pair or piecewise polynomial input), including thermal conductivity, specific heat and density
  • Constant or variable solid properties including temperature and composition dependence (data pair or piecewise polynomial input), including thermal conductivity, specific heat and density
  • Use of database containing material properties for standard fluids and solids (user-modifiable)
  • Availability of standard units systems
  • Temperature-dependent heat capacity and thermal conductivity in solid regions
  • User-defined property inputs
  • Automatic fitting tool for material properties
  • Gravity
  • Inertia term
  • Viscous heating
  • Heat source
  • Temperature variation of the density (Boussinesq approximation)
  • Surface tension
  • Young modulus
  • Poisson coefficient
  • Linear dilation coefficient
  • Interface to CAMPUSTM data base
  • Crystallization models
