The aim of the paper is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of Wall Heat Transfer Coefficient (WHTC) of pressurized pipe as a part of super-heater of the OP210 boiler. The object of the investigation is convection from saturated steam to the wall of the pipe, which works under high pressure and high temperature. The analysis is an approach to obtain exact solutions of WHTC according to the third type boundary condition compared to direct results from CFD analysis. The paper consists of three-step approach typical for CFD analysis: (i) Pre-Processing, the most elaborated part of the analysis where knowledge about super-heaters, turbulence, velocity profile is important to 3D model, mesh and boundary condition definition. (ii) Simulation of steady state turbulent flow until convergence criteria are met. (iii) Post-Processing where different approaches to the WHTC are shown in comparison. Also, the investigation includes two different types of meshes (where a different number of inflation layers are used) and comparison between k-epsilon and Solid Shear Stress (SST) turbulence model.
