13.4.5 Monitoring Convergence

If you are modeling periodic heat transfer with specified-temperature conditions, you can monitor the value of the bulk temperature ratio

 \theta = \frac{ T_{\rm wall} - T_{\rm bulk,inlet} } { T_{\rm wall} - T_{\rm bulk,exit} } (13.4-5)

during the calculation using the Statistic Monitors panel to ensure that you reach a converged solution. Select per/bulk-temp-ratio as the variable to be monitored. See Section  25.18.2 for details about using this feature.
