HI,

I want to model a two phase flow of a fluid contained in the annulus region of a concentric cylindrical geometry in FLUENT 6.

Can you please provide me with a tutorial or please guide me through the steps. I'll be highly obliged.

Thank you.

I am actually trying to simulate liquid-solid phase (sand particles in water) in a cylindrical couette flow geometry (mixture in the annulus and only inner cylinder rotating).

I am using FLuent 6.3.26

Is there tutorial which can be of my help or please guide me how can i get the liquid-solid phase mixture in FLUENT 6.3.

I am using
Gambit for making the 3D concentric cylinder geometry.
Should I give both SOLID and FLUID domain for the annular volume (in gambit)?

I have done that.

1- It's better to start your simulation with a simple 2D geometry.
2- You can use eulerian multiphase granular flow.
