The 3-D Numerical Simulation of Heat Transfer Process of Finned Copper Tube
In this article, finned copper tube used in the central air conditioning was acted as the discussed object. According to the combination with actual processing and theoretical calculations, Five finned tube was selected with typical structural parameters, and established their entity model using Pro/E, then the heat transfer process of finned tube was simulated through the ANSYS, the effect of the fin height, fin thickness and other structure parameters to the heat transfer enhancement of finned tube was researched. Meantime the efficiency of the heat transfer under different convection heat transfer coefficient was also studied.
