Improving of the heat transfer from a moulding block in an industrial oven
University of Gävle, Department of Technology and Built Environment.
2008 (English)Student paper second term, 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis presents a study of the cooling process of a solid block performed by a turbulent air flow channel. The study focuses on the turbulent flow and its influence in the heat transfer of the block.

The first part of the thesis is an analysis of the different turbulent model and their adaptation on the necessities of this study. Once the turbulent model has been confirmed it makes a study of the behavior of the cooling process by CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), and an analysis of the numerical accuracy of this computational study.

When the procedure of the study of the cooling process is defined it proposes some different variations in the initial solution to improve this process. The study concentrates in variations of the turbulence and the geometry of the studied block.

Finally, the different improving are discussed analyzing parameters as the heat transfer, pressure drop, time consuming or energy consuming.
