Description

Description

The present problem simulates the fluid flow inside a porous medium for heat sink cooling using ANSYS Fluent software. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

Studying fluid flow in porous media is one of science’s most widely used fields. A porous medium comprises mostly perforated materials and contains pores and void spaces within itself.

The present model is designed in three dimensions using Design Modeler software. The modeled geometry for this simulation consists of a hollow section acting as an inlet, followed by a porous aluminum foam, which is in contact with a heat source.

The meshing of this present model has been generated by Ansys Meshing software. The meshes used for this geometry are structured, and the total number of mesh cells is 7680.

Heat Sink Cooling Methodology

In this project, the fluid flow and heat transfer inside a porous medium is simulated by ANSYS Fluent software. This porous medium is in contact with a heat source, and the whole setup acts as a heat sink.

The flow enters through the inlet boundary with a velocity o 1.99 m/s and a temperature of 300K. It flows inside the porous medium to receive heat from it.

Moreover, the energy model is activated, and the RNG  k-epsilon model with standard wall function is exploited for fluid flow analysis.

Heat Sink Cooling Conclusion

At the end of the solution process, we obtain the temperature, velocity, pressure, streamlines, and velocity vectors.

As seen in the pressure contour, the flow pressure behind the porous medium significantly differs from that of the outlet boundary due to the resistance that the porous medium imposes on the system.

    The presentation of results in thermal analysis is crucial. How are the results displayed in training for this heat sink cooling simulation?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In the training for the heat sink cooling simulation, the results are displayed through various contours and plots. This includes temperature distributions, velocity fields, pressure contours, streamlines, and velocity vectors. These visualizations are designed to help understand how the fluid flow and heat transfer interact within the porous medium and how they impact the overall cooling performance. Moreover, the training likely discusses interpreting these contours in the context of the heat sink’s efficiency and effectiveness.

    I’m impressed by the detail in the simulation and interested to know if the heat transfer coefficients for the porous material were fixed or estimated during the process?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In the simulation performed by MR CFD, the heat transfer coefficients within the porous medium, such as the effective conductivity, are usually predefined based on the material’s properties (in this case, aluminum foam). They can also be estimated or adapted based on experimental data or empirical correlations during the CFD project setup. The specific approach in this scenario is not detailed, but generally, CFD analyses allow for precise control over these parameters, whether they are fixed or require estimation.
