During the development of compact heat exchangers with gyroids or other lattice structures, evaluating their performance through simulation is a critical step. nTop offers built-in thermal FE simulation tools, but a final validation or CFD analysis in ANSYS is often necessary.
In this presentation, Maiki Vlahinos, Senior Application Engineer at nTop, shows you how to export both solid and fluid domains of a heat exchanger and prepare them for simulation in ANSYS Fluent.
Watch and learn how to:
- Generate, mesh and export as STL solid and fluid bodies in nTop.
- Define & capture boundary condition surfaces in ANSYS SpaceClaim.
- Generate a volume mesh and inflation layers & setup a CFD analysis in ANSYS Fluent
