Simulation of heat transfer and melting with DPM module in a triangular canal

A lot of research has been done on the Discrete Phase Model(DPM) over the past three decades. These materials can be used to store passive heating. The major drawback of DPMs is their low thermal conductivity which prevents of high velocity of thermal flux. In recent years researchers have shown more interest in using DPMs. The reason is the increase in greenhouse gas emissions and rising fossil fuel prices.

In this analysis, it has been tried to simulate and analyze the heat transfer and melting process of a triangular channel containing the DPM module, using Ansys Fluent software.

Geometry and meshing

The geometry required for this analysis has been generated by Design Modeler software. The meshing process is also done with Ansys Meshing software. The grid type used in this analysis is unstructural and the total number of cells produced for this geometry is 2693552 cells.


The model which used to simulate is the k-epsilon standard flow. Also, the MHD model and the sub-model of Magnetic Induction are used to create a magnetic field. It is not necessary to explain that the energy equation will be solved with turbulent flow equations

Boundary conditions

For walls, the boundary condition of the Wall is considered. Inlet has been defined as velocity inlet, and for the outlet, the pressure outlet is used.

Discretization of equations

Due to the type of heat transfer in this analysis, the Pressure-Based and Transient mode solver was used to solve the equations and the SIMPLE algorithm was used to discretize the coupled velocity and pressure equations. Energy and momentum equations are discretized in the second order upwind.
