Default Mass Flow for deposition of particles
Machteld Rinkel
Posts: n/a
I am calculating deposition of particles (due to gravity) in an airflow in a pipe and I have the following problem: Since the particles (water) should stick to the wall of the pipe, I've set the Restitution Coefficients (Perp. and Parallel) to zero. Now, I want to calculate the fraction of the particles stuck on the wall (or the fraction of particles passing through the outlet). CFX 5.6 cannot calculate a difference in mass flow because of the mass continuity (I think). Can anyone give me any suggestions to solve this problem?
