 December 19, 2005, 19:14 Plate heat exchanger modeling #1 Ozlem Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am trying to model flow between parallel plates. However the velocity and temperature profile are not consistent with theoretical one. If anyone did such a model, can you give me the dimensions of the plates and the boundary conditions. Thanks ozlem

There are turbulent flow examples in the turbulence model section of the PHOENICS flow library of examples. I believe that there is also a library example for laminar fully-developed flow in a plane channel.

 January 25, 2006, 14:07 Re: Plate heat exchanger modeling #4 Ozlem Guest   Posts: n/a It is 2D flow. I am trying to solve milk protein deposition on the surface. I need velocity, temperature profile and mass transfer at the boundary layer. This program is difficult to understand for me. I am trying from simple case without mass transfer. Thanks for your offer. Regards Ozlem

 February 21, 2006, 06:27 Re: Plate heat exchanger modeling #7 Mike Guest   Posts: n/a Dear Ozlem, For me there is still no clear statement of your problem, ie laminar or turbulent flow, thermal boundary conditions, nature of the discepancy with theoretical results, etc. There have been several applications of PHOENICS to plate-heat exchangers, including: Kim S & Mills AF. Modeling of perforated plate heat exchangers. The PHOENICS Journal of Computational Fluid Dynamics and its Applications, Vol. 4 No. 1, pp 1-26, 1991. 91/11 Beale SB. Laminar fully developed flow and heat transfer in an off set rectangular plate-fin surface. The PHOENICS journal of Computational Fluid Dynamics and its Applications, Vol. 3, No 1, pp 1-38, 1990. 90/ I mention these papers because they appear in the PHOENICS Journal, which should contain the input and any ground files. I hope this helps.

 December 15, 2006, 01:00 Re: Plate heat exchanger modeling #11 Steven Guest   Posts: n/a You can find a comparison in Int J. Heat and Mass Transfer. 48, 15, 2005, pp. 3256-3260. There is good agreement between the CFD results (using PHOENICS) and the traditional solution for the eigenvalue problem.
