Compact tube-fin evaporators have been extensively used in refrigeration cassettes for light commercial applications. Such refrigeration systems are space constrained and, therefore, the heat exchangers (condenser and evaporator) must have a large area-to-volume ratio. In addition, such applications require a subfreezing evaporating temperature that induces(More)
In this work a numerical investigation is performed aiming to account the effects of the turbulence modeling in the performance of the Fluid-Structure Interaction simulation of a reciprocating compressor. An actual compressor geometry was analyzed, particularly considering the suction muffler and valve system. The global performance numerical results were(More)
