Convective Flow in a Heat Exchanger Plate
Application ID: 12153
This example models flow in a microchannel heat exchanger by coupling a Laminar Flow interface in 3D to a Pipe Flow interface. By the use of the Pipe Flow interface to model the flow in the microchannels the problem size is significantly reduced.
This model showcases the Pipe Connection feature that automatically connects a 3D and and Pipe Flow domain.
This model is included as an example in the following products:Pipe Flow Module
however additional products may be needed to reproduce it. This example may be created and run using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license.
