Radiators are heat exchangers used to transfer thermal energy from one medium to another for the purpose of cooling and heating. The majority of radiators are constructed to function in automobiles, buildings, and electronics. The radiator is always a source of heat to its environment, although this may be for either the purpose of heating this environment, or for cooling the fluid or coolant supplied to it, as for engine cooling. Despite the name, most radiators transfer the bulk of their heat via convection instead of thermal radiation. Spacecraft radiators necessarily must use radiation only to reject heat.
Air conditioning is one of the important branches of mechanical engineering. Setting the temperature of a room or a building has always been one of the major concerns of air conditioning designers. The high cost of energy needed to provide suit air-conditioning for every structure proportionate to its utilization, induces engineers to design air-conditioners with the highest efficiency. This design, whether to the cost of construction and maintenance of the ventilation system or in terms of the best performance, requires extensive research. Simulation and analysis of these systems can play an effective role in determining the most suitable ventilation system for each structure.
In this project, it has been tried to simulate heat in a room by a radiator. This project is done in Ansys Fluent software.
