ANSYS FLUENT – Heat Exchanger

A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat between two or more fluids. The fluids can be single or two phase and, depending on the exchanger type, may be separated or in direct contact. Devices involving energy sources such as nuclear fuel pins or fired heaters are not normally regarded as heat exchangers although many of the principles involved in their design are the same.


ANSYS ICEM CFD – Meshing 2D Pipe

The blocking feature in ANSYS ICEM CFD provides a projection-based mesh-generation environment. All block faces between different materials are projected to the closest CAD surfaces. Block faces within the same material can also be associated to specific CAD surfaces to enable the definition of internal walls

ANSYS Meshing

ANSYS Meshing – Element Order

The global Element Order option allows you to control whether meshes are to be created with midside nodes (quadratic elements) or without midside nodes (linear elements). Reducing the number of midside nodes reduces the number of degrees of freedom. Choices for the global Element Order option include Program Controlled, Linear, and Quadratic.

Design Modeler

Design Modeler – Symmetry

The Symmetry feature is a tool used to define a symmetry model. The feature takes either all the bodies or selected bodies of the model as input and accepts up to three symmetry planes. You can choose either full or partial models to work with. If a full model is used, the selected symmetry planes will slice off the model and only a portion of the model will be retained. The valid body types for this feature are surface and solid.
