Turbulence is welcomed in such thermal energy storage systems since it efficiently enhances heat transfer. Forced convection in porous media can be described by the macroscopic momentum and energy equations. In order to close the macroscopic equations, we analyzed the microscopic flow and temperature fields in porous media by direct numerical simulation (DNS) methods. Two DNS methods were adopted in our study to compare and verify the results. They are a finite volume method (FVM) and a Lattice-Boltzmann method (LBM). The porous matrix is made of a large number of periodically arranged 3-dimensional spheres. Based on our DNS results, we proposed a macroscopic model for calculating forced convection in porous media.||Conference:||16th International Heat Transfer Conference, IHTC 2018||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11420/2960||ISSN:||2377-424X||Institute:||Mehrphasenströmungen V-5||Type:||InProceedings (Aufsatz / Paper einer Konferenz etc.)|
