Project Information

backup, HPC, SoftwareInstallation, parallelization, file-transfer, parallelization, putty, ssh, sftp, openfoam, batch jobs, c++
Project Status: In Progress
Project Region: Northeast
Submitted By: Jingru Benner
Project Email: jingru.benner@wne.edu
Project Institution: Western New England University
Project Address: Springfield, Massachusetts. 01119

Mentors: Katia Bulekova, Josh Bevan
Students: Austen Metsack

Project Description

The objective of this project is to develop a model that can be used to facilitate the development of a process for industrial-scale production of High Temperature Phase Change Materials (PCM). The numerical model will first be validated with a simple boundary condition with which analytical solution exists. Then it will be used to predict the cooling curve of the PCM droplets with different process attributes. The simulation will be performed on BU cluster using OpenFOAM
