Nano Fluid Flows in a Heat Source Channel, Applying Mixture Multiphase Model, ANSYS Fluent Training

The present problem simulates the flow of an Al2O3-water nanofluid into a channel with a heat source using ANSYS Fluent software. This channel has a square cross-section and has ten obstacles inside.

Each of these obstacles has two diagonal plane barriers facing each other and a cylindrical barrier between them. Hence, the presence of these barriers determines the path of nanofluid flow through the channel.

Therefore, two different materials have been used water as the primary fluid and aluminum oxide (Al2O3) as the secondary fluid.

Aluminum oxide is defined as having a density of 3970 kg/m3, a specific heat capacity of 768 j/kg.K, a thermal conductivity of 40 W/m.K, and a viscosity equal to 0.000017894 kg/m.s and a molecular weight equal to 28.966 kg/kmol.

Also, the aluminum oxide particles defined as a secondary fluid have a diameter of 0.00001 m. In the lower part of this channel, there is a solid area of ​​aluminum.

The floor wall is under constant heat flux equal to 170,000 W/m2, which is responsible for transferring heat to the channel carrying the nanofluid. The simulation process is done in two steps.

At first, the simulation is performed in single-phase mode (pure water flow only). In this case, water flow enters the channel at a temperature of 300 K and a speed of 2.233 m/s. Then, the simulation is performed in a two-phase model (water flow containing aluminum oxide nanoparticles).

In this case, the nanoparticle of aluminum oxide enters the channel with the same water flow speed and temperature; Thus, the nanoparticle volume fraction is equal to 0.01.

The current model is designed in three dimensions using Design Modeler software. The model consists of a horizontal channel for the flow passage located on a solid object with heat flux.

The canal has a rectangular section with dimensions of 0.001 m * 0.0015 m, with ten obstacle categories. Each obstacle category consists of two diagonal plane barriers relative to each other and a cylindrical barrier between them.

The solid aluminum body under the channel has dimensions of 0.002 m * 0.02 m * 0.05 m. The following figure shows a view of the geometry.

The meshing of the present model has been done using ANSYS Meshing software. The mesh type is unstructured, and the element number is equal to 2160625.

Heat Source Methodology

To define the nanofluid, a mixture multi-phase model is used. The multi-phase mixture model is used when the mixing process occurs between a fluid and a solid particle. The boundary between the solute and the solvent is not accurately discernible.

Heat Source Conclusion

At the end of the solution process, two-dimensional and three-dimensional contours related to the mixing pressure, mixing temperature, and velocity of each of the water and Al2O3 phases are obtained. Two-dimensional contours are obtained in two sections of X_Z and Y_Z in the fluid flow region.

The fluid temperature increases as the fluid flow to the outlet section because of a heat source. At the same time, the nanoparticles enhance the temperature magnitude because of the more heat transfer.

Reviews

1. Travon Will

I found the concept intriguing: using nanoparticles in a heat source channel. I’m curious, what is the main outcome of introducing Al2O3 nanoparticles into the fluid? What advantage do they provide in terms of heat transfer in this simulation?

• MR CFD Support

The introduction of Al2O3 nanoparticles into the fluid increases the thermal conductivity of the nanofluid compared to the base fluid, which is water in this case. The increased thermal conductivity leads to a more efficient and enhanced heat transfer from the heat source to the fluid, improving the system’s thermal performance. In this simulation, including aluminum oxide nanoparticles results in a significant improvement in heat transfer efficiency within the channel.

The activation of the Open Channel Wave BC for seawater wave representation was excellent. It brought the simulation closer to reality. Can you share more on how this helped with the overall analysis?

• MR CFD Support

I’m pleased you appreciated the Open Channel Wave Boundary Condition approach. Since the fish cage interacts with a dynamic environment, accurately simulating the waves ensures that the interaction between the fluid forces and the structural responses is realistic. It allows the model to capture nuanced flow patterns, force distribution variations, and potential deformations that occur as a result of those waves. Moreover, using this condition alongside the two-phase VOF model for air and seawater gives us valuable insights into how the floating structure behaves under realistic sea conditions.

I’m impressed with the level of detail in the simulation’s methodology. Can I expect a significant efficiency increase in heat transfer when using this Al2O3-water nanofluid as compared to regular water in similar conditions?

• MR CFD Support

Thank you for your positive feedback on the level of detail in our methodology. Yes, using an Al2O3-water nanofluid typically increases the efficiency of heat transfer compared to using regular water. The nanoparticles enhance the thermal conductivity, allowing the nanofluid to transfer heat more effectively. This improvement in heat transfer efficiency is due to the unique properties of the nanoparticles and their interaction with the fluid.

The training material mentions aluminum oxide as a secondary fluid; can you confirm if it acts as a fluid or as a dispersed solid phase in the mixture model?

• MR CFD Support

Aluminum oxide (Al2O3) is introduced as a dispersed solid phase within a continuous fluid (water) in the simulation. Using the mixture multiphase model in ANSYS Fluent manages the interaction between the two, treating the nanoparticles as a secondary ‘pseudofluid’ due to their small size and dispersion in the primary fluid.

18. Ms. Assunta Auer

The product description is very detailed. I’m curious how the presence of Al2O3 nanoparticles influenced the heat transfer compared to the single-phase flow. Could you elaborate?

• MR CFD Support

Certainly. In the simulation, the addition of Al2O3 nanoparticles to the water increases the thermal conductivity of the fluid, resulting in more efficient heat transfer. The nanoparticles enhance the exchange of energy due to their higher conductivity relative to the base fluid (water), allowing for an overall improved heat transfer performance in the flow channel.
