Volume fraction to mass fraction
hi, all friend I have the value of volume fraction in my result and i want to change the volume fraction to mass fraction or concentration. How i do?

Re: Volume fraction to mass fraction
Hi Torsaki,

Look to the units for the answer...

To get the mass fraction, multiply by the density ratio of the two materials:


You can use a similar method to convert to concentration.

Solution Method in CFX 5.5.1
hi any one,

I want to know as soon as possible what the Alogarethim solution method use in the CFX 5.5.1 is it SIMPLE method or another method?

Re: Solution Method in CFX 5.5.1
Hi Hamza,

Simply put, CFX-5 uses a coupled multigrid approach whereby the hydrodynamic equations (u,v,w,p) are solved simultaneously in a single matrix at each timestep.

For a more thorough explanation, see, or contact CFX.

Regards, Robin

mass fraction to (%vol/vol)
HI all
I am totally lost in the conversion .I need to convert mass fraction to (vol/vol)%. I ahve two gases 0.316 of FReon and 0.684 of Nitrogen.

You use the gas densities to convert mass fraction to volume fraction, as described above.

It looks like I was having the same problem to convert from mass fraction to volume fraction. Here is the formula:


where, vf1=phase 1 volume fraction
vf2=phase 2 volume fraction
wf1=phase 1 mass fraction
wf2=phase 2 mass fraction
rho1=phase 1 density
rho2=phase 2 density

PS. To double check you correctly entered the formula check that vf1 + vf2 = 1
