Water spraying in exchanger systems is widely used to allow cooling and improving their performance. However, transfers within the spray mixture are difficult to express because the combined mass and heat are transferred between phases, which complicates the design of the spray systems. This article presents a numerical study of the influence of water volume fraction on the distribution of the temperature in a canal. A 2D numerical model of a horizontal channel was generated and the equations governing the continuous phases (air) and the dispersed phase (water) were developed. These equations were solved using Comsol multiphysics. A comparison of the simulation results and those of the experiment reveals an acceptable concordance.
