Study on Coupled Conduction and Convection Heat Transfer Based on Internal Heat Source
A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model is proposed to simulate numerically conjugated heat transfer process of fluid washing out solid with evenly internal heat source in the pipe. Temperature field and velocity field inside the pipe and outside solid are gained by calculation. Based on numerical simulation, the varying regularity of Nusselt number between fluid and solid wall surface is obtained and analyzed. The results show that there are two symmetrical vortexes in the back of solid. The Nusselt number and heat exchange rate dramatically decrease with increasing horizontal distance of top and bottom of solid.
