This paper proposed a basic model and an optimized model to obtain the temperature field of water in a bathtub with and without bubbles. Firstly, the basic heat transfer model is established based on the three-dimensional N-S equations, the heat transfer differential equations and cuboid boundary conditions. Furthermore, the optimal model, which takes the influence of bubbles into account, is developed. The effect is equivalently transferred to modify the heat transfer coefficient. The result shows that the bubbles will generally reduce the heat transfer efficiency. In addition, the result is carried out by means of finite element analysis, using the software Fluent.
