13.4 Modeling Periodic Heat Transfer

ANSYS FLUENT is able to predict heat transfer in periodically repeating geometries, such as compact heat exchangers, by including only a single periodic module for analysis.

This section discusses streamwise-periodic heat transfer. The treatment of streamwise-periodic flows is discussed in Section  9.2, and a description of no-pressure-drop periodic flow is provided in Section  7.3.16.
