Q. I have a thermal problem with conductivity a function of X and Y. The MP commands do not accept tables for properties. What do I do?
A. You can use the FLOTRAN elements to solve nonflow thermal problems. FLOTRAN accepts Utility Menu defined tables for properties. One uses material 1, and with FLOTRAN you turn flow off and turn the thermal option on.
Other controls of interest include the CFD solver for temperature (PGMR or sparse direct for temperature) , relaxation factors for properties and temperature, quadrature orders for diffusion terms, and the number of iterations to specify.
