This paper describes the CFD numerical simulation of heat transfer in the petal complex structure. Petal consists of core structure and detectors designed to improve the detection capabilities of the ATLAS detector and take advantage of operating at the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC). New generation silicon detectors in the petal require more efficient cooling of the front-end electronics and the silicon sensors themselves. To minimize reverse annealing of the silicon sensors the operating temperatures need to be reduced. In this case the evaporative CO2 cooling medium is used as it is ideal for this purpose. This work describes the flow simulation setup and results for the current prototype and heat transfer behavior for different operating states.
