Abstract

Computational simulations of turbulent mixed convection heat transfer experiments using carbon dioxide at supercritical pressure have been performed by solving the Reynolds averaged transport equations using an elliptic formulation. A number of two-equation low Reynolds number turbulence models have been used and the results have been compared directly with the experimental data. It has been shown that most of the models were to some extent able to reproduce the effects of the very strong influences of buoyancy on heat transfer in these experiments. However, the performance of the models varied significantly from one to another in terms of the predicted onset of such effects.
