Solidification and Melting ANSYS Fluent CFD Simulation Training Package
This CFD training package is prepared for BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, and ADVANCED users of ANSYS Fluent software who are interested in the Solidification & Melting modules, including 10 practical exercises. You will learn and obtain comprehensive training on how to simulate projects. The achieved knowledge will enable you to choose the most appropriate modeling approaches and methods for applications and CFD simulations.
Project number 1 simulates phase change material (PCM) for a room’s passive air conditioning. In general, phase change materials are materials with organic compounds that can absorb and store large amounts of latent thermal energy. Thermal energy storage in these materials is achieved during the phase change process (solid phase to liquid or vice versa).
Project number 2 simulates the cooling process of a battery (battery cooling) by applying phase change material (PCM). Modeling is related to a lithium battery used in vehicles. The present simulation is performed in two stages; In the first stage, only one lithium battery is modeled, and in the second stage, two layers of phase change material are used on both sides of the battery. This work aims to investigate the effectiveness of phase change materials in the cooling process of the battery.
In project number 3, using PCM encapsulated in a water tank solar heater has been investigated with different considerations, including the effect of melting and freezing temperature of PCM material and PCM material volume, and a comparison with no PCM material. The PCM space’s inner wall is considered a wall with a temperature condition of 603.3 K and a thickness of 0.0015 m.
Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger
Project number 4 simulates the performance of Phase Change Material (PCM) inside a shell and tube-finned heat exchanger. The shell is designed as a cylindrical tank carrying phase change materials and these PCMs are evenly distributed inside the tank. Since the PCMs of the present model are based on the phase change between the liquid and solid phases, the solidification and melting model has been used for the current simulation.
In project number 5, the phase change materials (PCM) sandwiched between two concentric cylindrical tubes have been simulated. 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.
Project number 6 concerns a gasoline fuel tank simulation carrying a single-way reciprocating spiral tube passing through the tank. This inner tube carries a flow of water at a temperature higher than the gasoline temperature to increase the fuel temperature by creating heat transfer between the diesel and the water and thus preventing freezing inside the tank. Therefore, the present model uses a solidification and melting module for the simulation.
Project number 7 simulates the solidification and melting of a phase change material (PCM) inside a tube with a wavy inner surface. In general, phase change materials are materials with organic compounds that can absorb and store large amounts of latent thermal energy. The phase change material studied in this simulation is paraffin.
Glass-coated circular chamber
Project number 8 simulates the performance of phase change material in a circular chamber with a glass cover. This PCM is evenly distributed inside the chamber. Due to the fact that the nature of the PCMs of the present model is based on the phase change between solid and liquid phases, the solidification and melting model has been used for the simulation. PCMs are materials with inorganic or organic compounds that are capable of absorbing and storing large amounts of latent thermal energy.
Project number 9 simulates the performance of phase change materials (PCM) in a storage tank. These PCMs are a set of spherical shapes inside the interior of a vertical cylindrical storage tank. The water flow comes out of the upper part of the tank. Since the nature of the PCM of the present model is based on the phase change between the two solid and liquid phases, the Solidification and Melting model has been used for simulation.
Project number 10 deals with the simulation of PCM. PCMs are embedded in a three-layer tube heat exchanger as a latent heat storage tank; The inner tube body and its fins are made of copper, which has good Thermal Conductivity, and the fluid in the inner tube is liquid silicone type and also the PCM is Erythritol. Since the nature of the PCMs of the present model is based on the phase change between the two solid and liquid phases, a Solidification and Melting module is used for CFD simulation.
