Default Refrigerator simulation

Dear all,

I am simulating the air flow inside the refrigerator. Actually I dont want to include the evaporator. Instead of evaporator, I have created the separate fluid zone. Is it possible to give the temperature loss when the air goes through this evaporator fluid zone. How to give input in fluent?

Thanks in advance,

with regards, JSM

What about refrigerant? Is it air which is pasing through the evaporator?

If you know net heat transferred then you may choose to apply Heat Flux BC over the wall of your evaporator domain.

I have never done such analysis but just it is my idea.

Assume we want to simulate certain properties of a refrigerator, namely:

capability to maintain maximum inside temperature up to a given maximum outside temperature
energy consumption
Which systems/subsystems/components properties have to be simulated?
