Slug flow modelling in vertical pipe using ansys software 12.1
My name is Eric Thompson I am pursuing my masters in petroleum engineering at African University of Science and Technology. However, I am using anys software 12.1 in my thesis work to model slug flow using VOF model, but I am facing some challenges and stack up now, even though, I have set most of the parameters for VOF model.
pressure based solver Volume of fluid model K.e turbulence model phases air and silicone oil Boundary conditions velocity inlet Outflow Wall Eventhough, the solution converges, I cant see the slugs been displaced in the contours. It seems l need some technical guide to overcome this challenge. I would be very grateful if ANYONE can assist me out to enable me finish my thesis work. Anyway this are my contacts: Facebook: Mawufemor Kwaseric Skype: kpesco1 Tel: +2348103880111. Email: kpesco_azigi@yahoo.com Hope to hear from you soon. Counting on your usual cooperation.I am left with two days to submit this thesis work. need urgent help. I will be very grateful for your assistance. Thank you Eric Thompson AUST 
I have tried using Outflow as a boundary condition and got unexpected results... Fluent manual suggests the application of Pressure Outlet boundary
Could you describe your geometry? Pipe diameter and length, vertical or horizontal? How did you define the phases inputs? Make sure you are using Georeconstruct for volume fraction advection and explicit transient scheme... Quote:

Slug flow modelling in 6m vertical pipe
Dear Jabbas,
Please the geometry of the pipe is 6 m with the following properties. Iwill be grateful if we can skype(kpesco1) or email (kpesco_azigi@yahoo.com) tto enable me to discuss the problem well with you Vertical Pipe angle =90 Length = 6m Diameter of the pipe= 0.067m Air density = 1.18kg/m3 air viscosity = 0.000018Kg/m s Siicone oil = 900kg/m3 Silicone oil viscosity = 0.00525 Kg/m s Surface tension = 0.02 Geometry 3D Acceleration due to gravity = 9.81m/s2 Transient state modelling 
ok
just sent you an email regards Quote:

slug flow
Hi Friends
I want to start working with ANSYS for CFD simulation of slug flow. I wanted to know that is this software capable of simulation of this flow pattern? do you have any paper that shows validation of ANSYS or FLUENT simulation with experimental data? thanks 
i have read some papers that I think the authors used fluent to simulate slug flow
the only ones that I remember that validated their results with experimetal data were simulations of a single taylor bubble moving in stagnant or flowing liquid simulations of several bubbles were only qualitatively compared to exparimental observations Quote:
