Abstract

The technology is proven to solve problems more effectively and efficiently, including
the use of the role of CFD in overcoming various problems in the field of Technology and
Engineering. CFD has played a role in carrying out processes before real work such as
design, calculation, simulation, and analysis. The purpose of this study is to analyze the
heat distribution and changes in mass flow rate in each model, analyze the relationship of
plate variations to changes in mass flow rate and CaCov heat absorption and analyze the
variation models of CaCov holes that are most effective at absorbing heat. This research
literature study uses the experimental method, and valid analysis uses the parameter flow
through porous media. The test results found that plate hole variation affects the mass
flow rate and heat absorbed by CaCov, observed through changes in temperature, and
mass flow rate graph. Extreme hole variations cause the fluid to circulate longer,
resulting in more heat being absorbed. Non-extreme hole variations produce shorter
circulating fluids, with heat absorbed more evenly, but less heat is stored, so it is
concluded that the First CaCov Model is best at absorbing heat.
