Investigation of an Evaporator Distributor with CFD
In this project, an evaporator distributor shown in the figure below will be analyzed to identify its performance based on how fluid is distributed to the evaporator tubes. 3D CFD model will be needed to be generated from the solid model. Two different working fluids and several different geometries will be examined. Parametric study will be performed to determine which parameters play an important role in distribution process. This project will be carried out with an industry partner.
- have knowledge of fundamental thermodynamics and fluid mechanics concepts.
Required Qualifications and Skills:
- should be able to work with Solidworks and CFD models.
- requires programming skill to have communication with CFD model.
- requires bi-weekly visits to company to discuss the progress of project.
