7.21 Radiator Boundary Conditions

A lumped-parameter model for a heat exchange element (for example, a radiator or condenser), is available in FLUENT. The radiator boundary type allows you to specify both the pressure drop and heat transfer coefficient as functions of the velocity normal to the radiator.

A more detailed heat exchanger model is also available in FLUENT. See Section  7.25 for details.
