Multi-regionally coupled analysis of thermal fluid flow and heat conduction of solid using OpenFOAM is carried out to clarify the behavior of hydrothermal oxidative destruction reactor of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Internal fluid of the reactor assumes a single-phase hot water without chemical reactions considering temperature dependence of thermophysical properties. Compressible Navier-Stokes equation with buoyancy force and energy equation with gravity term are alternately solved for the thermal fluid analysis. In order to consider conjugate heat transfer between the internal fluid and the reactor vessel, two-regionally coupled analysis of the fluid and vessel was executed by chtMultiRegionFoam solver in the OpenFOAM. To verify coupling effect, the multi-regionally coupled analyses results were compared with thermal fluid analysis of the internal fluid or heat conduction analysis of the vessel.
