Isothermal and Non-Isothermal Heat Exchangers
Model ID: 516
The example concerns a stainless-steel MEMS heat exchanger, which you can find in lab-on-a-chip devices in biotechnology and in microreactors such as for micro fuel cells. This model examines the heat exchanger in 3D, and it involves heat transfer through both convection and conduction.
The model solves for the temperature and heat flux in the device and investigate the convective term’s influenceon the heat exchange.
