Error in Interpolation Function

Please login with a confirmed email address before reporting spam

Hello All,

I am currently using an interpolation function, defined using a .txt file, as an time-dependent inlet temperature profile for the 'Heat Transfer in Pipes' interface.

The model successfully calls the function, however, there is a small error in what is called by the input function and what can be measured in the Results section, using a Point Evaluation at the inlet. The error is typically small, fluctuating around plus/minus 0.03 C, except at the beginning and end of the time range where it can reach values of close to plus/minus 0.2 C.

If anyone knows what may be causing this discrepancy, or how to minimize it, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you! Andrew
