The final model predicts a flow that matches the flow pattern of the PIV measurements and the experimental trend for peak velocity at the 405AdF center oven temperature. Comparisons of temperature and flow across the domain suggest that improvements to the thermal and flow boundary conditions will improve flow and temperature prediction. Recommendations are presented for the inclusion of additional heat transfer physics in the next oven model, and additional experimental data collection is highlighted as an opportunity to improve model boundary conditions.1 INTRODUCTION GE Appliances (GEA) relies heavily on experimental methods to evaluate, understand, and improve fluid flow and heat transfer in appliances. Designs are evaluated by taking temperature data with thermocouples and using anbsp;...
