Flow and heat transfer in a pin-fin array
Underlying Flow Regime 4-18
You are first asked to provide a brief review of the state of the art for this UFR, i.e. published studies of the UFR which have included comparisons of measurements with CFD results. You should then focus upon a least one such study and describe it in some detail. Ideally, this study will have been conducted under good quality control and will have been comprehensively reported and included in an established database to which a link can be made.
The present configuration has been studied in the framework of the 15th ERCOFTAC-SIG15/IAHR Workshop on Refined Turbulence Modelling which took place in october 2011 at EDF Chatou, France. It deals with the flow through a wall bounded pin matrix in a staggered arrangement with a heated bottom wall.
