Abstract

The main purpose of this project is to study the flow analysis of cooling water in gas turbine fin fan cooler in utilities plant in Gebeng, Pahang. The focus of this project is to study the flow analysis over the implementation of the new design of the fin fan cooler, with enhancement from the aspect of geometrical dimension and fin material selection. There are two design that have been analysed which are the former old design of the fin fan cooler who later will be replaced and the new and improved design of fin fan which will be commissioned. The flow patterns are studied by using the section of the finned tube within the domain of both different design of new and old. The Ansys Fluent R15.0 is utilized to stimulate the related boundary condition such forced convection and conduction for the fin section within the domain. The model of finned tube are drawn and represented geometrically by using Solidworks 2013. Finally, the result accumulated from the flow simulation of each design have been analysed and explained in precise manner to provide the future researchers to make further and more concise study regarding the flow analysis of gas turbine fin fan cooler in utilities plant.
