Optimisation topologique des transferts thermiques et massiques dans un canal asymétriquement chauffé

Abstract : This thesis deals with topology optimization of mass and heat transfer in the framework of the vertical asymetrically-heated channel. The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations coupled to the convection-diffusion equation through the Boussinesq approximation are employed and are solved with the finite volume method. We first propose a new interpolation technique for heat transfer optimization and validate it on referenced cases such as the "single pipe" and the "bend pipe". This new technique consists in the introduction of sigmoid interpolation functions to obain a better definition of the interface between fluid and solid domains, during the optimization process. We study then physical phenomenon in the asymmetrically heated channel , in particular the influence of thermal stratification outside the channel and surface radiation on thermal and dynamic quantities. We thus highlight the size variation of reversed flow at the exit of the channel and the plug-effect linked on external thermal stratification. Finally, we propose a new expression of mechanical power in order to control charges losses (despite addition of material) in the vertical channel combined with the expression of thermal power. In all considered cases, our algorithm succeeds to enhance one of the phenomenon modelled by our new cost functions without deteriorating the other one. We also compare the values of standard cost functions from the litterature over iteration of our optimization algorithm and show that our new cost functions are effective.
