Contribution à la simulation numérique des transferts de chaleur par conduction, rayonnement et convection thermosolutale dans des cavités

Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is the contribution to the numerical simulation of heat transfer by conduction, radiation and thermosolutal convection in a closed cavity or in a vertical channel. In most practical cases, the three modes of heat transfer are strongly coupled when the fluid in motion is a mixture of gases. Heat transfer by natural convection and surface condensation in two-dimensional enclosures in contact with a cold external ambient through a wall of finite thickness was studied numerically. Special attention was given on the modeling of the flow of a binary mixture consisting of humid air. Low-Mach number assumption was introduced in order to account for decreases in mixture mass and average pressure within the enclosure between the initial and steady states. Also, a numerical investigation was conducted to study mixed convection in a vertical channel with evaporation of thin liquid films on wetted walls. The effects of the thermal and solutal buoyancy forces on the flow field, heat and mass transfer are illustrated. Results were obtained both for variable and for constant properties using the one-third rule. Air-water vapor and air-hexane vapor mixtures, assumed as ideal gases, are considered under various boundary conditions
