Abstract

In this study, the virtual flux method (VFM) proposed by the authors was applied to the seamless calculation of heat fluid flow and heat conduction inside solid bodies. Flows both inside and around circular cylinders are calculated as examples. The estimated Nusselt numbers of the cylinder surfaces, which are calculated by the VFM, are compared with both numerical and experimental results obtained by other researchers. In order to show that the accuracy of the VFM is high, an exemplified seamless calculation of heat fluid flow and heat conduction inside a solid cylinder, which is an advantage of the VFM, are also performed.
