forced to stick of soot particles

Dear friends

I am trying to simulate a mixture of gas and soot particles .
My idea is to trap the soot particle by suitable design of the chamber.
Please find the CCL and attached geometry . I could not find any particle movement and no sticking effect in cfx post .
Kindly rectify my mistake

Your kind help is highly appreciated

Thank you

Have you done the CFX tutorials? There are several examples of particle flows.

Please post an image of your model, and what you expect the flow to do.

 kmgraju November 28, 2012 07:20

Thank you Mr Glenn

I have gone through flow through butterfly valve . Any other tutorial??
Thank you

Govind

 ghorrocks November 28, 2012 17:15

All the tutorials are useful, and there are a few others which use particle tracking. Have a look through the contents page of the tutorial manual.

Dear friend

please find the geometry which I have created to trap the soot particle
Kindly let me know my mistakes in the setting . I could not locate my mistakes

Thank you for your kind help

I do not have time to get your simulation working for you. You are going to have to do the debugging yourself.

But I can see you set wall restitution factors. This means the particles will bounce when they hit the wall, not stick.

 kmgraju December 10, 2012 01:26

Dear friend

I would like to calculate the deposition of the soot particles. how do I know that soot has been deposited on the wall or not?
Thank you

Govind

 ghorrocks December 10, 2012 04:57

First of all you have to decide what the physics of deposition is. Do the soot particles just stick to the wall if they hit it? At the length scale of soot I doubt this is accurate, all sorts of forces become important for tiny particles at small length scales and you will need to know how to deal with this for an accurate model.

But you do not care about accuracy and just want imaginary soot sticking to an imaginary wall (with the expected imaginery accuracy) then just put a zero coefficient of restitution onto the walls you want soot to stick to.
