 September 21, 2004, 04:37 Meaning of MIXTURE MODEL #1 Sherry Clark Guest   Posts: n/a I searched the internet expecting to be able to understand the meaning of MIXTURE MODEL, unfortunately I can't. So could anyone please here to show me some examples to explain what is MIXTURE MODEL? Thanks a lot. by Sherry Clark

Hence the only drag model available is the specified Drag Coefficient model. This may be a constant, or a function defined using expression language or user fortran." Is it what you're referring to? So I guess that is what people in CFX do call a framework in a solver which allows you to specify the interactions between the phases in your multiphase simulations. The manual is referring to two possible models - particle model and mixture model, so I'd say that in a situation, where your second phase in a continuous medium (dust or cocoa powder in a milk) are small to be dragged by the flow of a continuous phase, you do not model every particle, but a dispersed phase with some volume fraction parameter. On the other hand, if you need to calculate the jet of mice into the swimming pool, you need to follow every mouse and specify its mass and heat transfer to the water (not mentioning the turbulence of the mouse legs and energy of a sound waves of its squeaking).OK mice are too complicated example, lets say fuel jet. hope this helps - at least to find someone, who knows what the 'mixture model' means... matej
