Heating of a Flow in a Heat Exchanger Unit Cell

Model ID: 251


In this example, we study the transport by convection and conduction. Such a system may be found in a heat exchanger or in heating of endothermic reactors. The fluid flow enters the unit cell from below and the fluid is heated as it passes the heated cylinder.

Since the problem is symmetric, we only need to treat half of the unit cell. We vary the flow rate, using the parametric solver, in order to study the effects of separation on the temperature distribution in the solution.

This model was built using the following:
