Turbulent Flow Through a Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger Cross Section

Application ID: 1879

This model studies a part of a shell-and-tube heat exchanger where hot water enters from above. The cooling medium flows through the tubes that, in this model, impose a constant temperature at the walls. Furthermore, the tubes are assumed to be made of stainless steel and the heat flux is also modeled through them.

The purpose of the model is to show the coupling between the k-epsilon turbulence model and the heat transfer modeling interfaces in the Heat Transfer Module.

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