1 Tutorial 2. Modeling Periodic Flow and Heat Transfer Introduction Many industrial applications, such as steam generation in a boiler or air cooling in the coil of an air conditioner, can be modeled as two-dimensional periodic heat flow. This tutorial illustrates how to set up and solve a periodic heat transfer problem, given a pregenerated mesh. The system that is modeled is a bank of tubes containing a flowing fluid at one temperature that is immersed in a second fluid in cross flow at a different temperature. Both fluids are water, and the flow is classified as laminar and steady, with a Reynolds number of approximately 100. The mass flow rate of the cross flow is known and the model is used to predict the flow and temperature fields that result from convective heat transfer. Due to symmetry of the tube bank and the periodicity of the flow inherent in the tube bank geometry, only a portion of the geometry will be modeled in ANSYS FLUENT, with symmetry applied to the outer boundaries. The resulting mesh consists of a periodic module with symmetry. In the tutorial, the inlet boundary will be redefined as a periodic zone, and the outflow boundary defined as its shadow. This tutorial demonstrates how to do the following: Create periodic zones. Define a specified periodic mass flow rate. Model periodic heat transfer with specified temperature boundary conditions. Calculate a solution using the pressure-based solver. Plot temperature profiles on specified isosurfaces. Prerequisites This tutorial assumes that you are familiar with the menu structure in ANSYS FLUENT and that you have completed Tutorial 1. Some steps in the setup and solution procedure will not be shown explicitly. Release 12.0 c ANSYS, Inc. March 12,

2 Problem Description This problem considers a 2D section of a tube bank. A schematic of the problem is shown in Figure 2.1. The bank consists of uniformly spaced tubes with a diameter of 1 cm, which are staggered across the cross-fluid flow. Their centers are separated by a distance of 2 cm in the x direction, and 1 cm in the y direction. The bank has a depth of 1 m. 4 cm Τ = 300 K m = 0.05 kg/s { Τ wall = 400 K 0.5 cm 1 cm ρ = kg/m 3 µ = kg/m-s c p k = 4182 J/kg-K = 0.6 W/m-K Figure 2.1: Schematic of the Problem Because of the symmetry of the tube bank geometry, only a portion of the domain needs to be modeled. The computational domain is shown in outline in Figure 2.1. A mass flow rate of 0.05 kg/s is applied to the inlet boundary of the periodic module. The temperature of the tube wall (T wall ) is 400 K and the bulk temperature of the cross flow water (T ) is 300 K. The properties of water that are used in the model are shown in Figure Release 12.0 c ANSYS, Inc. March 12, 2009

3 Setup and Solution Preparation 1. Download periodic_flow_heat.zip from the User Services Center to your working folder (as described in Tutorial 1). 2. Unzip periodic_flow_heat.zip. The file tubebank.msh can be found in the periodic flow heat folder created after unzipping the file. 3. Use FLUENT Launcher to start the 2D version of ANSYS FLUENT. For more information about FLUENT Launcher, see Section in the separate User s Guide. Note: The Display Options are enabled by default. Therefore, once you read in the mesh, it will be displayed in the embedded graphics windows. Step 1: Mesh 1. Read the mesh file tubebank.msh. File Read Mesh Check the mesh. General Check ANSYS FLUENT will perform various checks on the mesh and report the progress in the ANSYS FLUENT console window. Ensure that the minimum volume reported is a positive number. 3. Scale the mesh. General Scale... Release 12.0 c ANSYS, Inc. March 12,

4 (a) Select cm (centimeters) from the Mesh Was Created In drop-down list in the Scaling group box. (b) Click Scale to scale the mesh. (c) Close the Scale Mesh dialog box. 4. Check the mesh. General Check Note: It is a good idea to check the mesh after you manipulate it (i.e., scale, convert to polyhedra, merge, separate, fuse, add zones, or smooth and swap.) This will ensure that the quality of the mesh has not been compromised. 5. Examine the mesh (Figure 2.2). Figure 2.2: Mesh for the Periodic Tube Bank Quadrilateral cells are used in the regions surrounding the tube walls and triangular cells are used for the rest of the domain, resulting in a hybrid mesh (see Figure 2.2). The quadrilateral cells provide better resolution of the viscous gradients near the tube walls. The remainder of the computational domain is filled with triangular cells for the sake of convenience. Extra: You can use the right mouse button to probe for mesh information in the graphics window. If you click the right mouse button on any node in the mesh, information will be displayed in the ANSYS FLUENT console about the associated zone, including the name of the zone. This feature is especially useful when you have several zones of the same type and you want to distinguish between them quickly. 2-4 Release 12.0 c ANSYS, Inc. March 12, 2009

5 6. Create the periodic zone. The inlet (wall-9) and outflow (wall-12) boundaries currently defined as wall zones need to be redefined as periodic using the text user interface. The wall-9 boundary will be redefined as a translationally periodic zone and wall-12 as a periodic shadow of wall-9. (a) Press <Enter> in the console to get the command prompt (>). (b) Enter the text command and input the responses outlined in boxes as shown: > mesh/modify-zones/make-periodic Periodic zone [()] 9 Shadow zone [()] 12 Rotational periodic? (if no, translational) [yes] Create periodic zones? [yes] yes Auto detect translation vector? [yes] yes no computed translation deltas: all 26 faces matched for zones 9 and 12. zone 12 deleted created periodic zones. Release 12.0 c ANSYS, Inc. March 12,

24 Summary In this tutorial, periodic flow and heat transfer in a staggered tube bank were modeled in ANSYS FLUENT. The model was set up assuming a known mass flow through the tube bank and constant wall temperatures. Due to the periodic nature of the flow and symmetry of the geometry, only a small piece of the full geometry was modeled. In addition, the tube bank configuration lent itself to the use of a hybrid mesh with quadrilateral cells around the tubes and triangles elsewhere. The Periodic Conditions dialog box makes it easy to run this type of model with a variety of operating conditions. For example, different flow rates (and hence different Reynolds numbers) can be studied, or a different inlet bulk temperature can be imposed. The resulting solution can then be examined to extract the pressure drop per tube row and overall Nusselt number for a range of Reynolds numbers. Further Improvements This tutorial guides you through the steps to reach an initial solution. You may be able to obtain a more accurate solution by using an appropriate higher-order discretization scheme and by adapting the mesh. Mesh adaption can also ensure that the solution is independent of the mesh. These steps are demonstrated in Tutorial Release 12.0 c ANSYS, Inc. March 12, 2009
