Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering volume 31, Article number: 32 (2018)
Abstract
Flowinduced vibration plays a positive role on heat transfer enhancement. Meanwhile, it is also a negative factor for fatigue strength. Satisfying the fatigue strength is the primary prerequisite for heat transfer enhancement. This paper numerically studied the flowinduced vibration of planar elastic tube bundle based on a twoway fluid–structure interaction (FSI) calculation. The numerical calculation involved the unsteady, threedimensional incompressible governing equations solved with finite volume approach and the dynamic balance equation of planar elastic tube bundle solved with finite element method combined with dynamic mesh scheme. The numerical approach was verified by comparing with the published experimental results. Then the vibration trajectory, deformation and stress contour of planar elastic tube bundle were all studied. Results show that the combined movement of planar elastic tube bundle represents the agitation from inside to outside. The vibration of outofplane is the main vibration form with the typically sinusoidal behavior because the magnitude of displacement along the outofplane direction is the 100 times than the value of inplane direction. The dangerous point locates in the innermost tube where the equivalent stress can be utilized to study the multiaxial fatigue of planar elastic tube bundle due to the alternating stress concentration. In the velocity range of 0.2‒3 m/s, it is inferred that the vibration amplitude plays a role on the stress response and the stress amplitude is susceptible to the fluid velocity. This research paves a way for studying the fatigue strength of planar elastic tube bundle by flowinduced vibration.
Introduction
Flowinduced vibration, considered as a complex phenomenon of fluid–structure interaction, may occur in many engineering fields, such as heat exchanger, nuclear engineering, ocean engineering [1,2,3]. This vibration will lead to the fatigue of structure due to the periodic alternating force. Thus, many scholars pay their attention on the fatigue failure by flowinduced vibration.
Ji et al. [4] analyzed the flowinduced vibration of heat transfer tube in evaporator heating chamber. The shedding frequency of vortex street, natural frequency and critical flow velocity were all calculated. Results show that the Karman vortex and turbulence buffeting occur at the entrance with high velocity of water vapor. While, the resonance of heat transfer tube occur because the shedding frequency is similar to the natural frequency of tube. The coupling effect of vibration and temperature difference stress lead to the fatigue damage of tube. In ocean engineering, fatigue failure of marine risers due to flowinduced vibration is one of the most significant failure modes. Xue et al. [5] proposed a new prediction model of FIV fatigue damage for riser considering both crossflow and inline vibrations based on the energy equilibrium theory. The effect of top velocity of sheared current, top tension, fluid density and the material of structure on the fatigue damage were discussed. Results reveal that the displacement of inline vibration is much less than the value of crossflow. However, there is a same important level for both fluid flows because high vibration frequency occurs in inline vibration. The top velocity of sheared current plays a great role on the fatigue damage. The fatigue damage may be reduced 50% owing to the 10% reduction in top velocity of sheared current. Sun et al. [6] investigated the fatigue damage of riser undergoing inline and crossflow flowinduced vibration using pseudoexcitation method. Results show that the position near the top of the riser Z/LR = 0.9 is the dangerous point. The fatigue damage is mainly subjected to the crossflow vibration. Wang et al. [7] experimentally studied the fatigue damage caused by vortexinduced vibration based on rainflow counting and a standard S–N curve in an ocean basin. Results show that amplitude modulation and mode transition dominate the fatigue of flexible cylinder. Ei et al. [8] studied the effect of tube support clearance on the flowinduced vibration of steam generators. Special emphasis was placed on crack propagation and leakage rates. The developed model was established based on the stresstime history due to the flowinduced vibration. Results show that clearances below 0.3 mm are crucial to restricting crack growth rates to acceptable levels.
Every coin has two sides. This vibration is a negative factor for fatigue failure. However, Flowinduced vibration has been proved to be a positive role on heat transfer enhancement [9,10,11]. Planar elastic tube bundle is a novel heat transfer device to enhance heat transfer using flowinduced vibration [12]. The heat transfer may be enhanced by two times than the value of fixed tube bundle [13]. Some emphasis has been placed on the heat transfer characteristics and the vibration characteristics [14,15,16]. For the fatigue failure of planar elastic tube bundle, there is very less researches in the open literatures. Yan et al. [17] pointed out that the cross section diameter of tube bundle and the mass block played major role on the stress of tube bundle.
Satisfying the fatigue strength is the primary prerequisite for heat transfer enhancement. In order to enrich the study of planar elastic tube bundle, the vibration response and stress analysis are studied in this paper to pave the way for fatigue analysis of planar elastic tube bundle. Thus, a twoway fluid–structure interaction is conducted for the flowinduced vibration of planar elastic tube bundle. The vibration trajectory, deformation and stress contour of planar elastic tube bundle are all studied. The conclusions are the basis for investigating the fatigue failure of planar elastic tube bundle.
Numerical Approach
Physical Model
The schematic of heat exchanger with singlerow planar elastic tube bundle presented in this paper is shown in Figure 1(a). The height H_{ s } and diameter D_{ s } of heat exchanger are 780 mm and 300 mm, respectively. The diameter of inlet D_{ in } and outlet D_{ out } are 63 mm and 65 mm, respectively. The planar elastic tube bundle is installed in the middle of shellside. The installation height H_{ t } is 430 mm. The planar elastic tube bundle is shown in Figure 1(b) including four curved copper tube and two massblocks. The radius of innermost tube R_{1} is 70 mm and the tube spacing is 20 mm. In the present work, the diameter of tube is 10 mm and the tube wall thickness is 1.5 mm.
In the heat transfer process, the fluid of shellside flows into heat exchanger from the bottom inlet and the planar elastic tube bundle is heated by the fluid of tubeside. Then the fluid of shellside is heated and flows out from the top outlet. Meanwhile, the tube vibration occurs because of the periodic alternating force. It is verified that this vibration is beneficial to heat transfer [18,19,20]. In this paper, the flowinduced vibration by shellside is studied because the effect of tubeside on the vibration of planar elastic tube bundle can be ignored [21].
Governing Equations
As described above, a socalled twoway FSI is indispensable to study the flowinduced vibration of planar elastic tube bundle. In the present work, the fluid of shellside is considered as threedimensional, unsteady and incompressible water. Therefore, in the Arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian (ALE) frame [22,23,24], this is used to calculate the twoway FSI approach. The governing equations including continuity, momentum and energy equation for the shellside fluid domain are listed as follows:
where (u_{ f }− u_{ mf }) is the convective velocity in shellside domain. u_{ f } is the fluid velocity and u_{ mf } is the mesh velocity. T, p, ρ, ν, C_{ p } and λ represent the temperature, pressure, density, kinematic viscosity, specific heat and thermal conductivity of fluid.
In the present work, the commercial CFD code ANSYS CFX and ANSYS Transient Structural Module were utilized to solve the flowinduced vibration of planar elastic tube bundle. Figure 2 shows the main flowchart of flowinduced vibration calculation in this paper. The fluid flow in shellside calculated by CFX is conducted firstly because the tube vibration occurs due to the periodic alternating force. The displacement of planar elastic tube bundle is transferred to the domain of shellside. As a result, the boundary of planar elastic tube bundle in shellside is updated using moving mesh method [25, 26]. After the CFD analysis, the force generated on planar elastic tube bundle is transferred to the domain of structure. Then, the structural motion equation of planar elastic tube bundle is calculated based on the above force boundary. Consequently, the flowinduced vibration of planar elastic tube bundle in shellside is calculated by this sequential solution of bidirection fluid–structure coupling method.
Owing to the twoway FSI coupling calculation, the displacement and force are transferred on the fluid–structure interface [27]. Thus, the following conservation equations must be satisfied on the fluid–structure interface:
where d and σ represent the displacement and stress on the fluid–structure interface. n is the normal vector.
Meshing and Boundary Conditions
Figure 3 shows the mesh of shellside and structure domain. In Figure 3(a), the shellside was divided into three sections including outlet section, middle section and inlet section due to the complex nature of shellside geometry structure. Among which, the outlet section and middle section were discretized by hexahedral mesh to save the computing memory and time. Meanwhile, the boundary layers with the first spacing 1 × 10^{−4} and growth ratio 1.2 were established around the planar elastic tube bundle. The inlet section was discretized by tetrahedral mesh. At last, three sections were connected by Interface 1 and Interface 2. The inlet was set to velocityinlet boundary with the constant temperature. The outlet was set to pressure boundary condition with 0 (gauge). The wall of planar elastic tube bundle was set to noslip boundary condition with constant wall temperature and all surface of planar elastic tube bundle were set to FSI interface for data transfer. Others wall of shellside were set to adiabatic. In Figure 3(b), the four curved were discretized by hexahedral mesh and two massblocks were discretized by tetrahedral mesh. The innermost and outermost tubes were fixed. All of the surfaces of planar elastic tube bundle were set to FSI surface with the constant wall temperature. The earth gravity is applied along the z direction.
Validation and Grid Independence Test
In order to solve the twoway FSI accurately, the comparison between numerical results and experimental results were conducted to validate the accuracy of flowinduced vibration calculation. In Table 1, it is found that a little relative error occurs between numerical results and experimental results. The smallest error and the greatest error are 1.32% and 2.41%, respectively. It is validated that the numerical results are acceptable for the flowinduced vibration calculation.
Meanwhile, three kinds of grid number in shellside were established to conduct the grid independence test, 316723, 323123 and 329523. It is derived that the relative error of convective heat transfer coefficient between 316723 and 323123 is 0.23% and the relative error of convective heat transfer coefficient between 323123 and 329523 is 0.16%. Almost equal vibration frequency of planar elastic tube bundle occurs for these three kinds of grid number. Therefore, the shellside was discretized to 323123 grids to solve the flowinduced vibration calculation in view of saving computer resource and keeping a balance between computational economics and accuracy.
Results and Discussion
Vibration Trajectory
At present, it is not clear for the movement trajectory of planar elastic tube bundle. Owing to the numerical calculation in flowinduced vibration, the vibration trajectory of planar elastic tube bundle on three planes is shown in Figure 4. The red arrow represents the movement direction of planar elastic tube bundle. The clockwise movement occurs on the x–y and x–z plane. The counterclockwise movement occurs on the y–z plane. It means that the combined movement of planar elastic tube bundle is the agitation from inside to outside, which is beneficial to reducing the thickness of thermal boundary layer to enhance heat transfer [29].
It is found that there is the same magnitude of displacement in x and y direction. The magnitude of displacement in z direction is 100 times than the value in x and y direction. It means that the vibration direction is perpendicular to the horizontal plane of planar elastic tube bundle, which is agreed with the conclusion of outofplane vibration [15].
Stable vibration is the premise to study the flowinduced vibration of planar elastic tube bundle. Thus, the time history of vibration in planar elastic tube bundle is shown in Figure 5 when the inlet velocity is in the range of 0.2‒0.5 m/s. It is clear that the stable vibration is obtained after 0.76 s in calculation of twoway FSI. The vibration curve represents typically sinusoidal behavior. For the vibration amplitude, it is derived that the magnitude of displacement belongs to the submillimeter level. The vibration amplitude increases with the increase in inlet velocity due to the increasing fluid force. While, there is almost equal frequency 24.28 Hz in these inlet velocities owing to the step evolution characteristic in vibration frequency of planar elastic tube bundle [21].
Deformation
When the stable vibration is obtained, the deformation of planar elastic tube bundle subjected to flowinduced vibration in a period is shown in Figure 6. For the vibration amplitude, it is magnified by 100 times to show clearly because of the vibration amplitude within the submillimeter level.
It is found that that the direction of vibration is along the z direction. The vibration balance position is below the horizontal plane of planar elastic tube bundle subjected to the earth gravity. The red arrow represents the instantaneous vibration direction. At the time of τ/4 and 3τ/4, the planar elastic tube bundle reaches the position of peak and valley, respectively. For the velocity 0.2 m/s, the planar elastic tube bundle is still below the horizontal plane at the position of peak. While the planar elastic tube bundle is almost over the horizontal plane at the position of peak in the velocity 0.5 m/s. The reason behind this is that the fluid force generated by increasing velocity overcomes the effect of earth gravity. It means that the vibration balance position will be raised because of the increasing fluid force.
Stress Analysis
Stress concentration of planar elastic tube bundle will occur in the vibration process as shown in Figure 6. Usually, the dangerous point locates in the innermost tube because the innermost tube is fixed with the greatest curvature. In Figure 6, it is clear that the maximum stress occurs at the time of 3τ/4, where is the valley of vibration. The value of stress at dangerous point is various with the vibration of planar elastic tube bundle. As a result, the fatigue failure will occur due to the alternating stress concentration in planar elastic tube bundle. It is verified that the planar elastic tube bundle suffers from bending stress and torsional stress. Thus, the equivalent stress can be utilized to study the multiaxial fatigue of planar elastic tube bundle, which is established based on the Von Mises stress criteria [30].
Figure 7 shows the time history of stress at dangerous point in the velocity 0.2 m/s and 0.5 m/s. It is clear that the stress curve represents typically sinusoidal behavior, which is similar to the vibration curve showed in Figure 5. The stress amplitude increases with the increases in the velocity. It is derived that the stress amplitude is 2.0 MPa and 4.5 MPa in the velocity 0.2 m/s and 0.5 m/s, respectively. Meanwhile, almost equal mean stress 7.1 MPa occurs in these two velocities. It means that the stress amplitude is sensitive to the fluid flow in the velocity range of 0.2‒0.5 m/s.
Vibration Response in High Velocity
It is derived that the velocity of range for this singlerow planar elastic tube bundle heat exchanger is 0.2–3 m/s based on the velocity of range in the heat exchanger SIW4.2/595/7065/10. The vibration and stress response were studied in the low flow velocity range 0.2–0.5 m/s. Figure 8 shows the vibration and stress response of planar elastic tube bundle in the high velocity range of 1–3 m/s.
In Figure 8(a), the maximum vibration amplitude 0.48 mm occurs in the velocity 2 m/s, which is the 5.3 times than the value in the velocity 0.2 m/s. The vibration balance position is over the horizontal plane when the value of velocity exceeds 2 m/s. Then, the vibration amplitude decreases with the increases in the velocity when the velocity exceeds 2 m/s. The minimum vibration amplitude 0.4 mm is obtained in the velocity 3 m/s, which is the 4.4 times than the value in the velocity 0.2 m/s. It is derived that the fluctuation 20% occurs for the vibration amplitude in the velocity range of 1‒3 m/s. For the vibration frequency, the maximum vibration frequency 23.69 Hz occurs in the velocity 2.5 m/s and the minimum vibration frequency 23.33 Hz occurs in the velocity 1 m/s. Comprehensive analysis are conducted that the fluctuation 2% occurs for the vibration frequency in the velocity range of 1‒3 m/s. It means that the vibration frequency exhibits independence on the inlet velocity. As a result, the vibration amplitude is more susceptible to the fluid velocity compared to the vibration frequency.
In Figure 8(b), the stress response is changed with the various in the vibration balance position and vibration amplitude. As a result, the mean stress decreases first and then increases. The maximum mean stress 9.0 MPa occurs in the velocity 1 m/s. The stress amplitude increases first and then decreases. The maximum stress amplitude 7.7 MPa occurs in the velocity 2 m/s. There is a larger fluctuation in stress amplitude compared the value in the velocity range 0.2‒0.5 m/s. Comprehensive analysis is conducted for the vibration and stress response. It implies that the vibration amplitude plays a role on the stress response and the stress amplitude is susceptible to the fluid velocity.
Conclusions
A socalled twoway FSI is conducted to study the flowinduced vibration of planar elastic tube bundle based on finite volume approach and finite element method. The numerical calculation is verified by comparing with the experimental results. Vibration trajectory, deformation and stress analysis of planar elastic tube bundle are all investigated in the velocity 0.2‒3 m/s. Some results of the present work are listed in the following:

(1)
The combined movement of planar elastic tube bundle represents the agitation from inside to outside. The magnitude of displacement along the outofplane direction is the 100 times than the value of inplane direction, which means that the vibration of outofplane is the main vibration form of planar elastic tube bundle.

(2)
The vibration of planar elastic tube bundle represents typically sinusoidal behavior. The vibration balance position is lifted with the increases in fluid force due to the increasing fluid velocity. Compared to the vibration frequency, the vibration amplitude is more susceptible to the fluid velocity.

(3)
The dangerous point locates in the innermost tube because the innermost tube is fixed with the greatest curvature. The equivalent stress can be utilized to study the multiaxial fatigue of planar elastic tube bundle due to the alternating stress concentration.

Comprehensive analysis is conducted for the vibration and stress response in the velocity range of 0.2‒3 m/s. It is inferred that the vibration amplitude plays a role on the stress response and the stress amplitude is susceptible to the fluid velocity.
