Swamp Cooler Project description
In this project, the movement of the cooled airflow inside a room is investigated. The air inside the room is cooled using swamp cooler and is distributed inside the room space. standard k-epsilon model is exploited to solve turbulent flow equations and the Energy equation is activated to calculate the temperature distribution inside the computational domain.
Geometry and mesh
The geometry of this project is designed in ANSYS design modeler. The present model is meshed in ANSYS meshing. The mesh type used for this geometry is structured and the element number is 120250.
Swamp Cooler CFD simulation settings
The key assumptions considered in this project are:
- Simulation is done using pressure-based solver.
- The present simulation and its results are considered to be steady and do not change as a function time.
- The effect of gravity is ignored.
The applied settings are summarized in the following table.
|near wall treatment||standard wall function|
|Velocity magnitude||5 m/s|
|Gauge pressure||0 Pa|
|Heat transfer coefficient||15 W/m2K|
|Free stream temperature||313 K|
|Spatial discretization||Pressure||Second order|
|Momentum||second order upwind|
|Energy||second order upwind|
|turbulent kinetic energy||first order upwind|
|turbulent dissipation rate||first order upwind|
Contours of pressure, velocity, temperature, etc. are obtained and presented.
There is a mesh file in this product. By the way, the Training File presents how to solve the problem and extract all desired results.
