hii friends,
i'm ram krishna.i have taken final year project to simulate a double pipe heat exchanger but i don't know how to do it.can some one tell me step by step procedure to simulate a double pipe heat exchanger in ansys cfx.
i want to know everything from mess generation to defining inlet, outlet, how to set fluid properties and how to give domain interface. i have to finish my project by 30 may so some one please help me. i will be very grateful to you.
thank you very much

No one is going to write a step-by-step tutorial for you, especially if you have no prior knowledge about CFX. I suggest that you do a lot of tutorials to familiarize yourself with the program. Have a look at tutorial 16 which deals with heat transfer from a heating coil.

Default is their any book available which has step by step procedure to work on heat exchange

hii friend,
thank you for your concern. is their any book available from where i can learn the procedure of analyzing heat exchangers in cfx or fluent.

I haven't seen a dedicated CFX book on heat exchangers, that's why I said that you should look into tutorial 16. The manual will also be useful.

You might need to perform conjugate heat transfer for double pipe heat exchanger. Moreover, proper near wall resolution is necessary. Meshing for the solid domain can be tricky due to large aspect ratio and you might need to have a number of cell layers (something like 4-5) in pipe domain. k-w SST model is recommended when you have separated flows etc.

If the solid wall is thin you can use the new capability (V13 I think) to put a thin interface between two fluid regions. This way you do not mesh the thin solid layer, but replace it with a representative thermal resistance. This may simplify things for you.

Agree with ghorrocks. Thin interface is possible. But sometimes, pipe features enhance or deter local heat transfer and temperature difference. In those cases CHT is interesting for determining local distribution of wall temperatures and heat flux for pipe domain and wall heat transfer coefficients etc for fluid domains

Obviously if reducing the solid down to a simple thermal resistance is not appropriate then the thin surface approach is not appropriate. Also keep in mind I do not think the thin surface takes into account the thermal mass of the solid (I think). So if you are interested in transient behaviour you will also have to determine if the solid time scale is fast enough to be ignored.

hii vijay..thanks for your replies...but i really need help.i can't do it on my own i tried it..my last date for submission of project is 15 june.can u let me any other way to do.like step by step procedure from modelling to analyzing in any cfd software.
thanking you
regards,
ram krishna

I do not have time to write step by step procedures.

If you tell us what does not seem to be working we will try to help.

this is a quick way to simulate the heat transfer through the solid, and if the version 13.0.
The only problem with doing this is that you will do the transfer only in one dimension.
But it's good to start your simulation aporximacion.

in post processing, i m getting error related to interface...
so what parameters should i modify in order to get simulation result.

Please start a new thread for a new question. And when you do please include enough information to make it a worthwhile question - see http://www.cfd-online.com/Wiki/Ansys...ible_answer.3F
