Dear Foamers,

I am back on the forum, after quite a big time. I am now trying to start again with the CFD and I am facing quite a challenging subject: I'd like to simulate an heat exchanger.
Is anyone working on the subject and can share some hints?

Thanks for your help,
Samuele

The multiregion and the very small geometry :-)..

Well, dear @Akidess, do you think it is a standard simulation, that can be handled easy with OpenFOAM. In case, would you mind giving me some hints?

OpenFOAM includes a heat exchanger tutorial. SimScale has a nice example online too: https://www.simscale.com/docs/conten...tTransfer.html
