- The Energy Equation is activated to consider heat transfer.
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.
