Study of the Flow and Heat Transfer Characteristics
The present work relates to the study of the characteristics of the turbulent and heat transfer flow from the forced convection in a two-dimensional corrugated periodic wall channel, using the Fluent CFD code. The mathematical formulation of the fluid state based on the Navier-Stokes and energy equations. Turbulence is modeled by the standard twoequation model (k-ε). Numerical solutions are obtained using the finite volume method. The obtained results show an increase in the Nusselt number with increasing Reynolds number and corrugation angle and a decrease in friction coefficient with increasing Reynolds number.
