In this graduate student project, a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based model was developed to simulate the heat transfer process in an enhanced forced convection heat transfer device using twisted tape inserts with wing cut. Using the CFD model, we determined an optimal design by placing twisted tape inserts with wing cuts of different twist ratios in the path of the fluid. Both the experiment and model show increased thermal performance factor and heat transfer efficiency. The model can be used as a design tool to further optimize the devices’ performance in the future.
