Heat Transfer

CFD simulation of Heat transfer (radiation, comvection and conduction)heat transfer

In the industrial world, heat transfer is one of the phenomena occurring in many important industrial processes. Sometimes we need to add heat and sometimes to remove heat from the systems and the streams.

For instance, we use different kinds of heat exchangers. Such as shell-and-tube, plate, helical, spiral and so many other types. Another application of transferring heat is in electrical engineering. In which the goal is to improve the thermal performance of electrical systems like CPUs and Hard Disk Drives. Moreover, Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning in buildings need an understanding of heat transfer processes to efficiently design HVAC systems.

Forced and natural convection, conduction, and radiation are different mechanisms of heat transfer. Phase change including boiling, condensation, and melting may occur in different applications and systems. This happens in the cases that energy is transferred between two or more substances. We want to emphasize that accurate CFD modeling and analysis of the heat transfer mechanisms in such systems leads to cost-effective and optimum designs.

By means of heat transfer analysis using ANSYS Fluent, a designer can find out how much heat dissipation we require. what the most efficient cooling method is, and which components are overheated once the system is exposed to a specific heat source.Mr CFD

Forced and Free Convection

Convection heat transfer occurs when the heat is transferred to a fluid by movement. Depending on the nature and cause of this movement, this type of heat transfer is divided into two types of forced or free convection heat transfer. Forced convection occurs when the fluid is forced to move by an external source such as a pump. Free convection also occurs when fluid motion is due to buoyancy (the density difference causes the fluid to move upward).

Convection Heat Transfer of Laminar Flow Inside Tube

These types of flows, also known as Poiseuille Flow, are flows with Reynolds Number below 2000 and are assumed to be fully developed. The Laminar flow means that it can be assumed that there is no lateral disturbance between the fluid layers, so the radial velocity component can be eliminated. Fully developed flow also means that the flow rate characteristics are independent of the axial coordinates.

After a brief overview of internal fluid flow mechanics, we now examine the thermal effects. In two situations where fluid flows into the tube at uniform temperatures below or above the surface temperature or when heat flux is applied to the tube surface, the heat transfer occurs and the thermal boundary layer begins to grow. If the tube length is long enough, the thermal boundary layer also reaches the developed state.

The process of heat transfers between two fluids at different temperatures separated by a solid wall occurs in many engineering applications. The device used for this heat transfer is called a “heat exchanger”. Uses of this device are in building heating systems, air conditioning, power generation, waste heat recovery, and chemical processing. We need to heat or cool the fluids used in chemical and physical processes.

According to the heat transfer formula Q = h*A*ΔT, one of the factors affecting the heat transfer rate is the effective contact surface area. One way to increase the heat transfer level is to increase the contact area which can be achieved by using a variety of blades (fins) and increasing the heat transfer rate.
