1 Turbulent Flow Through a Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger Introduction This model describes a part of a shell-and-tube heat exchanger (see Figure 1), where hot water enters from above. The cooling medium, commonly water, flows through the pipes and enters from the side. The tubes are assumed to be made of stainless steel. Figure 1: A tube bundle from a shell-and-tube heat exchanger. The arrows indicate the flow directions. Assuming that the cooling water is in abundant supply, the flow through the pipes has a constant temperature. Under that assumption, you can model this heat exchanger by a 2D model as shown in Figure 2, and the corresponding 2D domain appears in Figure 3. Note that the pipe interiors are not part of the domain because the model assumes the temperature to be constant there COMSOL 1 TURBULENT FLOW THROUGH A SHELL-AND-TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER

3 THE NEED FOR A TURBULENCE MODEL An important characteristic of the flow is the Reynolds number, Re, defined as UL Re = η where U is a velocity scale, L is a length scale, and η is a kinematic viscosity. If the Reynolds number is low, no turbulence model is needed. If, on the other hand, the Reynolds number is high, then the flow is dominated by convection, and a turbulence model is necessary. In this case, a suitable velocity scale is the mean inlet velocity, which is 1.5 m/s, and L is set to the pipe radius. Then, using standard values for water for the density and viscosity, the equation gives an approximate Reynolds number of 75,000, which is high enough to warrant the use of a turbulence model (see Ref. 1 for more information on flow regimes for different Reynolds numbers). The following example demonstrates how to model a coupled fluid-thermal interaction problem with COMSOL Multiphysics, using the Non-Isothermal Flow interface. Model Definition SOLID AND FLUID HEAT TRANSFER INCLUDING THE FLUID DYNAMICS The governing equations in this model are (Ref. 2 Ref. 4) The Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations and a k-ε turbulence model. Heat transport equations in the water and the solid (steel) tube walls. The Non-Isothermal Flow interface sets up both sets of equations together with the applicable couplings, making it easy to model the fluid-thermal interaction. The model uses temperature-dependent properties for water and steel from the built-in material library. It incorporates the influence of the turbulent fluctuations on the temperature field by using the Kays-Crawford model for the turbulent Prandtl number (for details, see the section The Non-Isothermal Flow and Conjugate Heat Transfer, Turbulent Flow Interfaces in the Heat Transfer Module User s Guide). Furthermore, to account for the effect of mixing due to eddies, it is necessary to correct the fluid s thermal conductivity. The turbulence results in an effective thermal conductivity, k eff, according to the equation 2012 COMSOL 3 TURBULENT FLOW THROUGH A SHELL-AND-TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER

4 C p μ T k eff = k + κ T κ T = Pr T where k is the fluid s physical thermal conductivity and κ T is the turbulent thermal conductivity. Furthermore, μ T denotes the turbulent dynamic viscosity, C p is the heat capacity, and Pr T refers to the turbulent Prandtl number. Be careful not to confuse k in the meaning of thermal conductivity with k in the meaning of turbulent kinetic energy. The boundary conditions for the problem are: k-ε equations in the fluid domain: - Specified initial velocity - Symmetry at the region borders - Wall function at the pipe/water interfaces - Fixed outlet pressure Heat transport equations: - Fixed temperature at the inlet - Convection-dominated transport at the outlet - Symmetry (thermal insulation) at the region borders - Thermal wall function at the pipe/water interfaces - Fixed temperature at the inner pipe surfaces 4 TURBULENT FLOW THROUGH A SHELL-AND-TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER 2012 COMSOL

The flow field is periodic in the y direction with the constant pressure drop about 1310 Pa. (Figure 5).
