A Study On Heat Transfer and Flow Characteristics for Boring in Sewer by Rotating Cutter Tool Park Young-Ki; Lee Jang-Choon; Lee Dong-Joo;
Heat transfer and flow characteristics in a pipe in which the rotating cutting tool for boring a underground pipe without digging were considered in this study. The amount of heat generation due to the friction between the rotating cutter and pipe wall, mixing (low of air and water injected to cool down are the two important factors to design the boring machine Computational fluid dynamics analysis using the Eulerian mixture model and the standard turbulence model was used to analyze the complex phenomena in a pipe during the process. Results show that pipe wall temperature decreased with increasing the cooling water inlet velocity. it is also shown that pipe wail temperature was lowered when the cutter rotation speed was increased until 600 rpm. There was no further cooling effect over 600 rpm.
