Determination of Flow Characteristics and Turbulent Heat Transfer in a Ribbed Roughened Square Duct, Part 2: Numerical Simulations
In the part 1 of this research, some useful turbulence models presented. In that part advantages of those turbulence models has been gathered. In the next, numerical details and procedure of solution are presented in details. By use of different turbulence models, it has been found that Spallart-Allmaras predicted the lowest value of heat transfer coefficient; in contrast, RSM1 has projected the more considerable results compared with other models; besides, it has been proven that the two-equation models prominently taken lesser time than RSM model. Eventually, the RNG2 model has been introduced as the optimized model of this research; moreover.
