Evaporative Cooling of Water

Application ID: 6192

This tutorial shows how to couple three physics interfaces to model evaporative cooling. The effects that need to be taken into account are heat transfer, transport of water vapor, and fluid flow. The Wet Surface feature is used to implement the source term for the water vapor and to compute the evaporative heat source available from the Boundary Heat Source feature. The Moist Air feature is used to accurately define moisture-dependent thermodynamic properties.

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