Cooling of a Nickel Cylindrical Rod with Nucleate Boiling of Water

Application ID: 102951

This tutorial model illustrates the use of the nucleate boiling heat flux features to compute the transient cooling of a cylindrical rod plated with nickel, and immersed in a pool of boiling water. The temperature and heat flux results obtained with a 3D time-dependent computation, with the heat flux applied on the lateral surface of the rod, are presented. The Rohsenow's correlation is used for the estimation of the flux due to nucleate boiling.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
