 December 21, 2007, 05:04 How to simulate the flow and heat transfer of phase change materials? #1 rosol Guest   Posts: n/a Dear all , I have to simulate the flow and heat transfer of phase change materials in fluent but I don't know how to do that in fluent what is the difference from the pure fluid and how to introduce the effect of phase change and the meltting of pcm since the energy equation is differ from the single fluid. Please who know how to do that to help me because I need that urgently Thanks alot

Regards

I think maybe you can first calculate the PCM boundary condition in water, set PCM as solid,Then build PCM separately with boundary condition(obtain from first calculation).

There are detailed explanation in fluent help at Modeling Solidification.

Hi,
I am trying to model melting process and i have two different densities one for the liquid phase and the other for the solid phase also i read all the detailed in the fluent help at Modeling Solidification but they didn't mention how to do these two densities in one equation ? and i think the values of C1 & C2 are different in each cases therefore i cannot depend on the vales in the fluent help. My question is how to make one equation of liquid phase density & solid phase density in one equation? Help me please .
