 October 17, 2013, 02:56 multiphase flow -superheated steam #5 New Member   mari Join Date: Feb 2012 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 6 Hii Everyone... I am using multi-phase mixture model.. my fluid are superheated steam(as a primary phase) and water-liquid (as a secondary phase). The problem was property of steam(enthalpy) wat i need supposed to get is not getting (for e.g) In my boundry condition enthalpy value of a steam from a steam table is h=3000kj/kg but wat i am getting from cfd results is nearly h=1200kj/kg... how to fix the problem ...

 April 28, 2015, 05:43 Heat Pipe Simulation in Fluent #6 New Member   Join Date: Apr 2015 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 Hello guys, i am trying to design a heat pipe in ansys fluent. temperatures at evaporator and condensor are 50degree and 25 degree respectively. liquid fillinf ratio is 70%. so here are the conditions i gave in my simulation. i chose double precision, transient pressure based solver. model- multiphase-volume of fluid with energy equation on. In phase interaction - mass - number of transfer mechanisms - 1 Evaporation-condensation with both 0.1 frequency and saturation temperature of 320K. Surface tension of 0.072 n\m with wall Adhesion. Boundary Conditions - Evaporator as Pressure inlet Guage pressure: 0 Initial Guage Pressure: 0 Temp: 350K Condensor as Pressure outlet Guage pressure: 0 Back flow temperature: 0 Adiabatic as Wall No slip wall contact Angle: 70 I am not getting any proper result with these conditions. Rest all are kept default values. Please Anyone of you guys are familiar with the design, it would be great if you could help me

i am simulating heat pipe with one phase, i have problem in simulating porous wick,the capillary driven flow, can you help?
best regards
