In this paper, we use the complete two-fluid model to simulate transient heat transfer for a forced flow of He II at high Reynolds number following the setup of the experiments performed by Fuzier, S. and Van Sciver, S., “Experimental measurements and modeling of transient heat transfer in forced flow of He II at high velocities,” Cryogenics, 48(3–4), pp. 130 – 137, (2008). A particular attention has been paid to the heat increase due to forced flow without external warming. The simulation are performed using HellFOAM , the helium superfluid simulator based on the OpenFOAM technology. Simulations results are then compared to the experimental data.
