Numerical analysis of thermally developing turbulent flow in partially lled porous pipes


School of Mechanical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran


This work numerically simulates thermally developing turbulent flow in a partially lled porous pipe. The pipe is made up of a clear fluid region and a centering fluidsaturated porous medium region. The pipe is subjected to a constant wall temperature. Darcy-Brinkman-Forchheimer model is used to model the momentum equations in the porous medium. ......
