Couple level-set multiphase flow with heat transfer in fluids

Please login with a confirmed email address before reporting spam

Dear

I would like to simulate two-phase flow (Oxylene-Nitrogen ) through a channel of 3.4 mm in diameter with heat transfer from the channel wall to the fluid. It is quite simple to simulate this case for one-phase flow, but there is no built-in multiphysics coupling of heat transfer and multiphase flow available in COMSOL. I am using the level set approach with version 5.1 of COMSOL. Is it possible to couple these physics to obtain temperature profiles in the fluid? If so, what is the most convenient way to do this?

Thank you.

Dear Tils, I suggest looking into our paper http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0377042715000242 and poster https://www.comsol.com/paper/modelling-of-reactive-non-isothermal-mixture-flow-and-its-simulation-in-comsol-m-19013. although our model setting is quite different from yours, I think you can learn a lot about the underlying governing equations and heat transfer. With regards Peter
