Modelling of rotary dryer
 
I am modelling the gas-solid interaction in flighted rotary dryer. I am looking at how the modelling the process. I found difficult to conceptualize the modelling strategy. The dryer is cylindrical shell that has internal flights for lifting and dropping the solids in the presence of gas flowing either countercurrent or co-current. Please advise how best to model this. I want to look at the gas-solids interaction in the dryer.

Expecting your prompt assistance

Hi,

Sounds like a typical particle model flow. There are examples of how to do this sort of thing which come with CFX. What specifically is the issue?

You're right. How do I model this in CFX? I am new to CFX, how do I carry out the modelling the geometry itself that's main concern.

Hi,

There are tutorial examples which come with CFX and Workbench and more are available on the CFX Community website.

as you know ,the air-floation dryer is used in large scale.and some chinese factories are using the dryers now. i want to simulation the convection heat transfer coefficient via ansys or fluent.which one should be appropriate?
my email is shaoyunsjj@hotmail.i want make friends with americans .we can communicate with each other .thank you !

Both software can do it. Try them both and use the one you like the best.
