## Description

In this project, the steady airflow (ventilation) in a storage container room with two walls is 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 meshing of this project has been done with ANSYS Meshing software. The mesh type is Structured, and the element number is 115635.

## Storage Container Room Methodology

In this project, ANSYS Fluent software investigates steady airflow in a storage container room with two walls. Container rooms are often used to store perishable industrial goods and must be kept under the influence of steady airflow for cooling and ventilation.

In the present work, steady air flow is simulated in a 0.5 * 0.5 * 1 room with two walls against the airflow path, which represents containing chamber.

Air enters the domain with a velocity equal to 5 m/s and reaches a maximum velocity of approximately 20 m/s in the domain after flowing over the second wall.

Moreover, the standard k-epsilon model and energy equation are enabled to solve the turbulent fluid equations and calculate temperature distribution within the domain.

## Storage Container Room Conclusion

At the end of the solution process, two-dimensional contours related to pressure, velocity, and streamlines are obtained. As can be seen, air velocity at the inlet is equal to 5 m/s, which due to the geometry specifications of the problem, reaches a maximum value of 20 m/s.

The normal force exerted on the walls in the domain is equal to 15.8526 [N]. We can observe the extreme turbulence in space between two walls where turbulent kinetic energy reaches values of up to 2 j/kg.

## Reviews

1. Delta Cole

I’m interested in the meshing strategy used in this simulation. Can you provide more details?

• MR CFD Support

The simulation uses a structured mesh, which provides a balance between computational efficiency and accuracy. The mesh is refined in areas of interest to capture the important flow details.

2. Mckenna Wilkinson

Can this simulation be extended to model multi-phase flows, such as the evaporation of a liquid within the storage container?

• MR CFD Support

While the current model is set up for single-phase flow, it can certainly be extended to model multi-phase flows. We’re open to contributions and can accommodate your desired simulations.

3. Idella Kuhlman IV

Is it possible to change the boundary conditions in the simulation to model different scenarios?

• MR CFD Support

Absolutely, our simulations are fully customizable. You can adjust the boundary conditions to simulate different scenarios according to your needs.
