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

Re: Refrigerator simulation
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.

condensor analysis

i am doing analysis of condenser coil in fluent.the inlet condition are vapor at 100 deg celsius and velocity o.2m/s and at coil wall convection h= 10 w/mk ,phases are (primary) vapor and(sec) water,which model is suits better mixture or eulerian

pls can any body suggest me

help me
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?
