Abstract:
With the advances in computational power and numerical techniques, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has emerged as a powerful tool to optimize design. In present study, Numerical simulations of cooling tower with different shaped fluidized bed are used to identify the temperature distribution with variation in mass fraction in nanofluid (ZnO). Within it has been found out Different mass fraction levels have also been found out at different fluidized bed in the cooling tower. The model of the fluidized bed cooling tower has been created in unigraphics 8.0 and analysis has been performed using ANSYS 15.0. The simulation has been done for both temperature and effectiveness. Obtained results have been validated with the available base paper experimental work. The maximum amount of heat transfer is achieved on numerical simulation as the results obtained with respect to temperature on different mass fraction of nanofluid, thus 6.8% of average temperature is obtained on circular shaped fluidized bed and 13% average effectiveness is obtained in circular shaped fluidized bed, hence the results shows convergence to base paper experimental investigation.
