Turbulent Flow Through a Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger
Model ID: 1879
This model studies a part of a shell-and-tube heat exchanger where hot water enters from above. The cooling medium flows through the tubes that, in this model, impose a constant temperature at the walls. Furthermore, the tubes are assumed to be made of stainless steel and the heat flux is also modeled through them. The purpose of the model is to show the coupling between the k-omega turbulence model and the heat transfer modeling interfaces in the Heat Transfer Module.
