Application of Kármán vortex streets to influence the heat transfer in radiators

This thesis analyzes the influence of von-Kármán vortex streets on the heat transfer in radiators. The flow is simulated in 2-D with ANSYS software and several parameters are modified. Subsequently the simulations are validated by experimental data.
