Sandwiched PCM CFD Simulation, Ansys Fluent Training
In this project, a Sandwiched PCM CFD Simulation between two concentric cylindrical tubes was simulated, and the results were investigated using ANSYS Fluent software. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.
The three-dimensional geometry of this project has been produced with Design Modeler software. The length and width of the calculation area are 50 cm, and the height is 300 cm.
We carry out the model’s meshing using ANSYS Meshing software. The mesh type is Structured, and the element number is 360000.
Sandwiched PCM Methodology
In this project, the phase change materials (PCM) sandwiched between two concentric cylindrical tubes have been simulated using Ansys Fluent software. PCM is trapped inside two cylindrical walls, and the inner wall has a high temperature.
These materials can store thermal energy and energy storage and discharge. The PCM properties are defined as a function of temperature. Also, the temperature of the heated wall changes based on the distance from the inlet boundary, causing a non-uniform melting profile.
Moreover, the RNG k-epsilon model is used to solve turbulent fluid equations.
Sandwiched PCM Conclusion
After the solution, two-dimensional contours related to the velocity, temperature, and liquid volume fraction are obtained.
For instance, based on the liquid volume fraction contour, we can see that the PCM material near the hot wall changes phase due to rising temperature and changes from solid to liquid, forming a liquid layer. Gradually, the thickness of this layer increases.
