Title
Evaluation of two-dimensional approach for computational modelling of heat and momentum transfer in liquid containing horizontal cans and experimental validation
Abstract

Axi-symmetric approach in vertical cans lead to 2-dimensional (2D) model with shorter computational times. For horizontal cans containing liquids, this approach is not possible due to internally evolved natural convection. If an assumption is made to neglect gravitational effect in horizontal direction, it may be possible to use a 2D model. Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate this approach numerically and experimentally. In simulations, continuity, energy and momentum equations were solved in 2D and 3D using Ansys CFX 12.1 for horizontal cans containing water and another viscous liquid. In experiments, water filled cans were prepared, and temperature data were compared with simulation results. The results demonstrated the possible use of 2D approach in modelling for liquid containing horizontal cans with significant reduction in computational times. Optimization algorithms of simulation programs are also expected to be used in combination with simulation studies since computation times are reduced significantly.

► 2D approach in liquid containing horizontal cans was demonstrated. ► Navier–Stokes equations were solved for water and viscous liquid in horizontal can. ► The results were numerically and experimentally illustrated. ► Viscosity effects on the 2D approach were addressed.
