- The paper presents a numerical study on the heat transfer in through-thickness direction of single woven layers, based on the jet system theory. A mathematical model, involving the Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes partial differential equations is used, and two turbulence models (k − ɛ and RSM) are applied to solve the closure problem. Numerical results for the temperature distribution, heat rate, heat flux and thermal resistance of the samples are obtained, analyzed, and validated by experimental data. The presented approach for modeling the heat transfer through woven macrostructures is concluded to be a working numerical tool that has the potential to replace costly design iterations and experiments to produce woven textiles with desired performance.
