 October 21, 2013, 03:03 Questions about "Dispersed Fluid Model" #1 Member   Hamed Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 64 Rep Power: 9 Dear Friends, I want to model a two phase flow in CFX, in fact my problem can be performed by dispersed fluid model in CFX but I have three questions about this model : 1-Is this model Eulerian or Lagrangian? (I think it is Eulerian but I am not sure) 2- Is there any limitation about volume fraction of 2nd phase during the use of this model ? in my problem the volume fraction of 2nd phase is 1%. 3- Can we using this model for compressible fluids ? With Best Regards

If you are using a continuum approach it is Eularian. If you are modelling discrete particles it is lagrangian. 2. It depends on exactly the Eularian model you are using. Different models have different volume fraction limitations. 3. Again, depends on the Eularian model. But I think most (if not all) of them are OK with compressible flow.

I want to model a fluid-fluid flow using dispersed fluid model by CFX ? (one fluid continuous fluid with 99% volume fraction and the other dispersed fluid with 1% volume fraction). Best Regards

They all are very different.

 October 21, 2013, 08:32 #7 Member   Hamed Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 64 Rep Power: 9 sorry for consuming your time but I searched in CFD documentation and I did not find any thing about volume fraction limitations . BEST

Dear ghorrocks
In fact again I searched CFX documentations but I did not find anything about volume fraction limitations. Would you please help me ?

Look in the theory manual of the CFX documentation, and get some of the references it cites.

Dear ghorrocks
I have really wondered from your type of talking, that was so discourtesy, please know that you do not perform a very important work and you only answer the questions of some new software users from morning till night .
