Main Article Content
The study aimed at conducting thermal analysis to carry out heat transfer comparison between two channels. For this purpose, two 2-D (corrugated and straight) channels have been considered for investigation. Direct numerical simulation has been implemented, in which Reynolds number is varied in an ascending manner (2000<Re>5000), while flow behavior has been maintained in a steady turbulent mode. To undergo analysis, Fluent (ANSYS Workbench 15.0) has been utilized. Air has been considered as a working fluid during analysis, while dimensions like cross section, height and length have been taken as invariant parameters for both channels. For all cases wall flux, has been regarded as a constant measure during heat transfer simulation. After obtaining solution, results have been compared for both channels and it is concluded that transmission of heat is much more prominent in corrugated channel as in comparison with straight channel.
