October 11, , November 6, The time now is It has fluid region that is moving heat away from or to somewhere else, yes? October 12, , March 8,
All times are GMT This is a good, quick solution to arrive at engineering results. Perhaps describe your radiator. And there is a fluid around the solid containing the internal fluid. Add Thread to del. October 11, , If you are working with a different radiator please describe.
Add Thread to del.
There are several approaches for this problem. Make it even more physical by including other solids nearby. The hardest part of this problem is the cad and making sure you have conformal mesh.
Modelling a flow throught a radiator. The time now is If it is accomplished quickly and accurately, then expand the model to include more geometry.
The others are walls. However, it may not be needed.
However, for a dissertation, I would not recommend this approach because it does not do justice to the abilities of the code, nor to your time spent on the dissertation. March 20, It has fluid region that is moving heat away from or to somewhere else, yes?

Perhaps describe your radiator. Instead, the approach that would be more physical, more complimentary to your final product dissertationand more taking full advantage of capabilities of code would be to model all three portions of this problem.
October 11, December 15, All times are GMT Otherwise, create a connected, conformal mesh of these three regions with the latter being bounded by a farfield condition, i. July 15, If you are working with a different radiator please describe. The complete radiator and the heat exchange from internal fluid through disserttation to external fluid would be very interesting.
Flow across the radiator would simply be the transfer of heat from the radiator to the fluid at a variety of heat fluxes and temperatures, validated from experiment. The first and simplest would be to treat the radiator as a porous media. October 12, To be sure, run simulation with adiabatic and another with an HTC or temperature condition set.
Then we will see what sstar of radiator you are working with and may be able to provide additional suggestions. November 6, Should i model the radiator that only one part of which?

March 8, It has a solid that contains that fluid region. Can you post labeled screenshots on a website somewhere? October 10, The solid is the thickness of the radiator wall, probably only a few cells needed. How should i model this panel radiator?
If BCs are correct, you will see cdm+ resulting heating transfer to the fluid the same either way. Instead, the software has been coded to recognize that fluid-solid heat transfer will be going between these regions.
