Description

Description

This simulation is about a Planar Heat Exchanger via ANSYS Fluent software. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

This project investigates a 4-layer planar heat exchanger with zigzag fins in each layer. Steady hot (T=286.5K) and cold (T=276.5K) water flow enter the planar domain, moving through the heat exchanging region and generating vortex flow by colliding with zigzag fins.

Also, the residence time of the fluids and the contact surfaces increase in the existence of these zigzag fans, which leads to a more heat transfer between the hot and cold flows.

Both flows exit the heat exchanging domain with approximately equal temperature (T=282K).

The geometry of the present model is drawn by Design Modeler software. The model is then meshed by ANSYS Meshing software. The model mesh is unstructured, and 4017548 cells have been created.

Planar Heat Exchanger Method

In this simulation, the energy model is activated because the main goal of this project is heat transfer. Also, since we have a multi-layer heat exchanger, the model consists of several computational zones. Water flows in all layers but at different temperatures to transfer heat between the layers.

Planar Heat Exchanger Conclusion

After simulation, the contours of temperature, velocity, and pressure for each heat exchanger layer are obtained. After simulation, the contours of temperature, velocity, and pressure for each heat exchanger layer are obtained.

Layers are planes parallel to the XY plane, which are assigned 1 to 4 as the increase of their Z. Layers 1 and 3 are regions where cold flow is heated up, and layers 2 and 4 are regions where hot flow is cooled down. The hot flow’s temperature at the inlet and outlet is 286.2 K and 282.213 K, respectively.

The cold flow’s temperature at the inlet and outlet is 276.5 K and 282.325 K, respectively. Using it, the heat transfer rate from the hot flow is equal to 93.8503W, and the heat transfer rate from the cold flow is equal to -94.754W, which can be considered equal with a reasonable approximation.

    I’ve been interested in heat exchanger simulations for a while. The results you obtained look impressive! The balanced temperature at the outlets suggest a highly efficient design. Can you tell me how did the inclusion of zigzag fins impacted the heat transfer effectiveness compared to traditional fin designs?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Thank you for your compliment! The zigzag fins increase the turbulence within the fluid flow, enhancing the convective heat transfer by disrupting the boundary layer formation. This design leads to prolonged contact surfaces and residence times compared to straight fin designs. The increase in the fluid mixing and disruption in the flow patterns contributes significantly to the planar heat exchanger’s heat transfer effectiveness, making it more effective in transferring heat than traditional fin designs.

    I’m really impressed by the level of detail provided in this simulation of the planar heat exchanger. The use of mixing tabs to enhance heat transfer efficiency is a clever approach that likely contributes to the effective evening out of temperatures between the hot and cold flows. It’s incredible that the simulation manages to achieve a near-equal temperature (T=282K) at the outlets of both flows, indicating a well-balanced heat exchange process. The comprehensive analysis of the temperature, pressure, and velocity profiles within the heat exchange layers demonstrates an in-depth understanding of the dynamics involved. Kudos to the team for implementing an unstructured mesh with over 4 million cells, ensuring that the intricacies of flow and thermal distribution are well-captured. This simulation surely provides valuable insights for those interested in the design and optimization of heat exchangers!

    What exactly do the mixing tabs do in this heat exchanger simulation? It’s fascinating how they seem to improve heat transfer.

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The mixing tabs in this heat exchanger simulation serve to disrupt the laminar flow, creating vortices that enhance mixing of the fluid streams. This increased turbulence improves the heat transfer efficiency by promoting more uniform temperature distribution and increasing the thermal contact time between the hot and cold water.
