HEAT TRANSFER IN A BITUMEN TANKER
Posted Feb 25, 2013, 12:21 PM EST Version 4.2, Version 4.2a, Version 4.3, Version 4.3a 0 Replies
For the bitumen I have Non-isothermal Flow-Laminar ,
For the gaseous phase above the bitumen: Non-isothermal Flow-Laminar (not sure).
For the propane: Pipe Flow module (I am not sure if I can use it for a gas)
Also I have Heat transfer in solids for all solid structure with convection to the exterior.
I need to simulate the propane because my goal is to analyze the different configurations of heaters and their impact in the temperature profiles , specifically , the risk of reaching ignition conditions at the interface bitumen/gaseous phase.
Are the modules ok for this simulation ? I always have some kind of error message.
