Hi,

I would like to set up a simulation, using Solidworks if possible, to study the heat transfer in a device similar to a popcorn machine.

In this problem there are many particles (popcorn kernels for example) occupying a certain volume at the bottom of a metal chamber. Blowing hot air on them from the bottom lofts them, and they circulate and cook via convection and conduction.

I have some experimental data with many known variables to use as a reference, and once I can get the simulation to reproduce what I've seen physically, I would like to play with the chamber geometries/load sizes/temperatures/etc. to optimize for my application.

If you can help me set up this simulation or have any advice related to characterizing this problem, please contact me!

Thanks!

Nick
