Rotating Drum Heat Analysis

Question asked by Mazen Obeid on Mar 26, 2018



I was wondering if it is possible to do a thermal analysis on a rotating drum. In summary, we have a water cooled rotating drum that comes in contact with molten metal and a strip is formed. I am interested in trying to study the expansion behavior of the drum due to the heat applied to it from the molten metal. One method that i applied is splitting the drum into 4 sections using split lines and apply a temperature to each face that varies with time (to simulate a rotating surface).


Thank you,
