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 example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
