Thermal Analysis in a storage tank CFD Simulation, ANSYS Fluent Tutorial


A storage Tank is a container that holds fluids for a short or long term in hot or cold thermal conditions. In this project, a square-shaped storage tank equipped with two inlets is modeled to control the outlet temperature at the top of the tank.

The geometry of the present problem is a 2D square domain with a 2m height, and the inlets and outlet diameters are 0.2m and 0.3m, respectively. Plus, the geometry is designed in Ansys Design Modeler software. Additionally, Ansys meshing software is used for generating meshes of the solution. The elements are structured, and the element number is precisely 10,056.

This CFD project is the 1st episode of the ANSYS Fluent General Training Course.

Methodology: Thermal Analysis in a storage tank

The pressure-based solver has been employed due to the incompressibility of the fluid. Also, the simulation is independent of Time, so it has performed in steady state form.


At the end of the solution process, two-dimensional contours and vectors related to water pressure, temperature, turbulence kinetic energy, and velocity are obtained. The water flow enters the inlet and rapidly moves through the outlet. As seen in the extracted contours, both flows tend to flow toward the central outlet, which provokes a mix, affecting their temperature and velocity.

    I recently completed the Thermal Analysis in a Storage Tank CFD Simulation course and was pleasantly surprised at how well-organized and informative it was. The integration of theory, practical examples, and step-by-step tutorial in ANSYS Fluent was seamless, and I am now much more confident handling similar analyses for my projects. The visual content including the 2D contours and vectors was very helpful in understanding the complex fluid dynamics within the tank.
