The Design – Ansys Fluent Fluid Flow | Hot and Cold Liquid
The variation pipe is a kind of connector used to create specific angles in the pipelines. These fittings are used in mechanical industries, facilities, and customization. Therefore, the disruption of any fluid movement within these parts causes the flow system to fail (and most often causes damage) in the industry. Hence, simulating the flow of fluid inside this variation pipe is helpful during the construction of these solid parts (and even plastic), especially in high-pressure points. Also, if the fluid has a hot temperature higher than the variation-pipe temperature, the importance of simulating increases because of the thermal between the hot and cold fluid and the variation-pipe.
In this analysis, we tried to CFD simulation of fluid flow inside the variation pipe (90 degrees) using ANSYS Fluent software.
Geometry & Grid
The main geometry has been designed by ANSYS Design Modeler, and some correction has been generated by ANSYS Fluent software.
ANSYS Fluent software has been used for Initialize using the hybrid initialization method including 30 iterations, 1.3412e-01 continuity, 3.3534e-03 x-velocity, 2.0670e-03 y-velocity, 5.4284e-04 energy, 1.5079e-02 k, and 5.4049e-03 epsilon.
K-epsilon (2 equation) model has been used for fluid flow inside the design modeler and the simulation considers the hot and cold liquid phenomena. So, Case will be initialized with constant pressure are solved.
In this simulation, the flow input type is VELOCITY INLET in the hot and cold zone. The magnitude in the hot zone is 1000 m/s and the inlet temperature is 1200 K. The magnitude in the cold zone is 50 m/s and the inlet temperature is 273 K. The output flow type is PRESSURE OUTLET and Gauge pressure is equal to 0. The variation-pipe (90 degrees) wall thermal type is HEAT FLUX (Heat generation rate 0 w/m3, Heat flux is equal to 0 w/m2)
Discretization of Equations
According to the type of flow in this analysis, the simple algorithm is used to discretize the coupled velocity and pressure equations. The momentum equation has been discretized in the Second Order Upwind for more discretization accuracy. Although, the pressure-based solver is used.
Finally, the results are shown in terms of temperature and velocity contours.
