Thermal Performance, Finite Volume Approach


These work carried out in the field of fluid flow and heat transfer through wavy and corrugated channel. Using computation CFD software namely ANSYS Fluent to solving the governing equation. The corrugated and wavy surface is mainly used in compact heat exchanger where advantage of different surface texture has been undertaken in order to enhance the thermal performance of the system. A CFD simulation have been performed for highly Turbulent flow and influence of surface texture has been visualized. The result clearly shows that the three channel straight, wavy, and corrugated, thermal performance and also shows the comparison between them, the wavy has better thermal performance.
