Default Turbulent Forced Convection
Posts: n/a
I am trying to model forced convection with a gas flow through a carrier pipe and cooling water flowing through the annular space between the carrier pipe and a jacket pipe. There do not seem to be any tutorials that are this specific.

Since I am new to Fluent, does anyone have any directions or suggestions on how to accomplish this?

I guess, your flow is turbulent, so

1. generate a grid. Take care, that the yplus values at the walls, where the heat transfer will take place are in a good range (allowable range for yplus depents on the wall modell you are using - check near wall treatement section in Fluent manual) to estimate yplus check:

2. in Fluent, select the appropiate wall modell and start simulating!

The near wall treatment is VERY important for heat transfer problems. There is a strong dependency of wall modells, yplus and HTC.

basically, thats it!
