    Setting up flow simulation for air/air exchanger

    Craig Sandstrom

      I am trying to figure out how to properly set up flow simulation for an intercooler.  I have used flow simulation to determine max cfm so I'm a familiar with the program in that aspect.  I only modeled one layer of the core to try to figure out how to set it up.  I have caps on either end of the core and set up the boundary conditions for the charged air.    I don't know how to setup the fluid subdomain for the ambient air at a constant temperature and velocity.  I'm trying to find out the temperature drop over the section of the core.

      Also has anyone read any books on Solidworks flow simulation?
