Simulation of phase change materials

  1. May 22, 2016 #1
    Dear all,
    Interested in change phase, I would like to set a simulation to understand the multiphysics phenomena of heat storage in a shell and tube tank between hot water as the heat transfer fluid and a PCM ( phase change material) using the commercial CFD software Fluent. The purpose is to describe three zones:
    - The PCM (Phase Change Material) to follow the progress of the phase change;
    - Water;
    - The wall between the PCM and twater.
    unfortunately I am a beginner and I would like you to guide me to acheive this simulation.
