coolling fluid flow
I am an undergraduate of mechanical engineering and for one of my projects concerning heat exchange, esp. "convective cooling", I have had trouble defining and meshing solid structures in FIDAP. The "examples manual" provides some help, but nearly all the examples show how to mesh fluid not solid.
I would like to simulate a transient cooling flow past a heated obstacle, where the goal is to obtain temperature contours in the obstacle as the velocity of the fluid goes up (the obvious analogy is "example 16" -3D flow past a heated obstacle- where it doesn't mesh the electronic chip itself but the area surrounding it!) .
I would be very much delighted if you assist me in this respect.
Yours Truly, Susan Burke
Re: coolling fluid flow
That is a typical conjugate heat transfaer problem. Harmonic means between the solid and fluid interfaces have to be used.
