Hilsch Ranque Vortex Tube is a very simple device, known for its phenomenal separation temperature effect. With a compressed gas inlet pipe simultaneously produces two different gas streams - one is hotter and the second is colder than the gas inlet. In recent years, various theories have attempted to explain this effect without achieving universal consent. The small size of the Vortex tube has considerable difficulty in predicting the temperature, pressure and flow field inside. This is Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis comes to the aid of scientists. Many researchers have attempted such analysis using turbulence models such as the Standard Model k-e, RNG k-e model and the delivery model k-e, Large Eddy Simulation Technique (LES), etc. This article attempts to provide an overview of recent qualitative research on RHVT using CFD. Care was taken to explore the various parameters related to the physical movement within RHVT, instead of being a monotone. It is expected that the evaluation to help future research in the related field.
