Numerical Simulation and Design of Flow Field of Water-Cooled Roller Based on FLUENT
Water-cooled roller is the core component of the production of negative plate of electrolytic lead, and the thickness and uniformity of negative plate of electrolytic lead is determined by flow field of internal cooling water of water-cooled roller. In order to catch the distribution of flow field inside of water-cooled roller and guide the design, the moving reference frame technology in fluent software is used to numerically simulate the 3d flow in water-cooled roller and display the characteristics and state of the flow inside the water-cooled roller Intuitive. The optimal aperture of water hole is obtained through the contrastive analysis of simulation of different apertures of water holes. The performance of water-cooled prototype meets the requirements of field investigation, also the thickness and uniformity of negative plate of electrolytic lead meet production requirement.
