Abstract

Computational connective and conductive heat transfer B. Sunden Division of Heat Transfer, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund, Sweden Abstract In this paper a brief description of numerical computation methods for convective and conductive heat transfer problems is presented. In particular the finite volume method (FVM) is considered. Various discretization schemes, methods for handling the pressure-velocity coupling, turbulence modeling, solution procedure etc. are described. A note on complex geometries is also included. 1 Introduction Efficient, accurate and stable numerical methods for solving fluid flow problems, heat and mass transfer processes, chemical reactions, turbulent phenomena are of great importance in many industrial applications. It is nowadays generally recognised that computer analysis of complex problems may provide a cost- effective, quick and sufficiently reliable method in many cases. Also sometimes the computational methods may be
