Numerical Simulation Research on Louver Fin in Air Conditioning for Cars

Abstract:

Article Preview

Heat transfer and fluid flow on the air side for heat exchanger in the air conditioning system are numerically simulated by FLUENT commercial software. Numerical analysis is conducted on the plate louver fin, the sinusoid louver fin and the leaf louver fin when the inlet velocity rang is from 2m/s to 7m/s. Heat transfer factor and friction coefficient are respectively fitted with the Reynolds number by the correlation. The sinusoid louver fin is found to have the best comprehensive heat transfer performance. Not only the leaf louver fin’s comprehensive heat transfer performance is good, but also its pressure drop loss is 28.1%~38.8% lower than that of plate louver fin
