Thermal interaction of fluid and solid is investigated utilizing steady state Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model. Beyond the capability of modelling single phase flow, the factors that initialize boiling phenomena and affect its intensity are also studied and implemented. An alternative of modelling fluid behaviour under circumstances where this thermal phase change can occur is introduced. The herein presented method highlights the practical usage of fluid flow modelling.
