## Description

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.

The depth of analysis in the heat exchange results is impressive. Could you share how turbulence was accounted for in the simulation?

• MR CFD Support

In the Double Pipe Counter Flow Heat Exchanger simulation, turbulence was likely modeled using one of the standard turbulence models such as the k-epsilon or k-omega model. These models help in capturing the chaotic fluctuations of fluid velocity and pressure which are a critical aspect of accurately simulating a heat exchanger’s performance. The choice of model and its parameters would depend on the flow conditions and Reynolds number.

I found the temperature change in the cold water flow to be very minimal. Can you explain why there’s such a small temperature difference after the exchange?

• MR CFD Support

In the project, the small temperature change in the cold water flow may be attributed to factors such as the specific heat capacity of the cold fluid, the mass flow rate, the effectiveness of the heat exchanger design, and the surface area available for heat transfer. Admin should be able to provide more specifics.

28. Prof. Wellington Fahey Sr.

Could you explain if there’s a routine procedure for checking the mesh independence in this kind of simulation?

• MR CFD Support

Absolutely, a mesh independence study is critical in CFD analyses to ensure accuracy of results. Typically, the procedure involves starting with a coarse mesh and progressively refining it until variations in the output (like temperature, velocity, pressure fields) fall within an acceptable small percentage range. This specific routine allows the CFD engineer to establish that further mesh refinement does not significantly alter the simulation outcome, indicating that the mesh is adequately capturing the physics of the situation.
