In this project, ANSYS Fluent software investigates the Double Pipe Counter Flow Heat Exchanger.

Heat exchangers are widely used in industrial applications where the vital need is to cool down a fluid. Counter-flow heat exchangers are the simplest form of heat exchangers where the exchange of thermal energy between hot and cold flows is done through a shared interface between these flows.

The geometry of the fluid domain is designed in the Design Modeler, and the computational grid is generated using ANSYS Meshing. The mesh type is unstructured, and the element number is 115635.

Double Pipe Methodology

The water mass flow rate at the inlet is 117.59 kg/s and 38.94 kg/s for hot and cold flows, respectively.

Double Pipe Conclusion

Hot water flow enters and exits the domain with temperatures equal to 370 and 369.67k, respectively. Cold water flow enters and exits the domain with temperatures equal to 300 and 300.11k, respectively. Heat exchange between the flows is equal to 53KW.


  1. Dimitri Strosin

    Can the simulation handle non-Newtonian fluids or is it strictly for Newtonian fluids?

    • MR CFD Support

      The current model is set up for Newtonian fluids, but the simulation can be modified to handle non-Newtonian fluids as well.

  2. Mr. Houston Rice

    What is the computational cost of the simulation? Can it be run on a standard laptop?

    • MR CFD Support

      The computational cost depends on the complexity of the geometry and the number of cells in the mesh. A standard laptop should be sufficient for the current model.

  3. Ora Walsh I

    Can the simulation model phase change, like condensation or boiling?

    • MR CFD Support

      The current model does not include phase change. However, we can modify the model to include phase change upon request.

  4. Katrina Stracke

    Can the simulation be extended to three dimensions?

    • MR CFD Support

      Yes, the simulation can be extended to three dimensions. Please contact us for a customized solution.
