Computational Fluid Mechanics And Heat Transfer, Third Edition (Series In Computational And Physical REPACK
A mathematical model of the physical case and a numerical method are used in a CFD software tool to analyze the fluid flow. For instance, the Navier-Stokes (N-S) equations are specified as the mathematical model of the physical case. This describes changes in all those physical properties for both fluid flow and heat transfer. A mathematical model varies in accordance with the content of the problem such as heat transfer, mass transfer, phase change, chemical reaction, etc. Moreover, the reliability of a CFD analysis highly depends on the whole structure of the process. The verification of the mathematical model is extremely important to create an accurate case for solving the problem. Besides, the determination of proper numerical methods is the key to generate a reliable solution. The CFD analysis is a key element in generating a sustainable product development process, as the number of physical prototypes can be reduced drastically.

The heat transfer process of vacuum glass is very complicated. In particular, the heat transfer process of functional vacuum glass, which includes the coupling of heat conduction, convection, and radiation, does not have an exact mathematical solution. The most important parameter representing the thermal properties of vacuum glass, the heat transfer coefficient, is difficult to measure online because it increases over time, thereby decreasing the thermal-insulation performance. Thus, measuring it quickly and accurately for a vacuum glass in use is difficult. This study was conducted to develop an efficient method to simulate heat transfer through vacuum glass. To this end, based on advanced numerical-simulation technology, a computational fluid dynamics software was used to analyse the heat transfer process, and the simulation results applied to guide and analyse the non-steady-state test method. It was found that when a circular heating plate is used to heat the side of the vacuum glass, the ratio of the radius of the heating plate to the thickness of the vacuum glass should exceed three. This approach guarantees that the centre of the heating plate undergoes one-dimensional heat transfer, and the temperature measurement at the centre of the non-heated surface is of practical significance.
CFD can be seen as a group of computational methodologies (discussed below) used to solve equations governing fluid flow. In the application of CFD, a critical step is to decide which set of physical assumptions and related equations need to be used for the problem at hand. To illustrate this step, the following summarizes the physical assumptions/simplifications taken in equations of a flow that is single-phase (see multiphase flow and two-phase flow), single-species (i.e., it consists of one chemical species), non-reacting, and (unless said otherwise) compressible. Thermal radiation is neglected, and body forces due to gravity are considered (unless said otherwise). In addition, for this type of flow, the next discussion highlights the hierarchy of flow equations solved with CFD. Note that some of the following equations could be derived in more than one way.
