Simulation of heat equation with OOF2

Simulation of heat equation with OOF2

Simulation of heat equation with OOF2

Dear all,

I want to simulate the correlation of micrustructures and properties using OOF2 Software.
First I Chose to simulate the heat Transfer. For that purpose I had a representative micrograph, set an elevated temperature at the bottom boundary to be constant and defined a time for which I want to simulate how the heat from the bottom "diffuses" into the material locally. The time was set 0.001 s.

What parameter ever (Time stepper and different imlicit, semi-explicit, explicit mathematic models) the simulation always stops at an early time due to an "Input error". Dependent on the details of the Parameters stopping happens at about 1e-6 s. But at this time most of the material is still at starting temperature..

Just as an Experiment I simplified the microstructure defining a parallel structure with the second Phase being a channel. But in that case the Simulation stopped early, as well.

What is "wrong"? How do I get ahead?

Thanks a lot

White Paper - How ESI is Helping Move New Medical Device Product to Market Quicker & More Cost Effic
Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why it’s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
