Hi

I am doing a 2D simulation for the movement of a water droplet having Diameter 25 micrometer through a channel of cross scetion 50 micro X 500 micro..
Using Eulerian VOF coupled method to explicitly define the velocity of droplet and oil phase

I patch the droplet phase and assign a volume fraction of 1 to that water droplet patched region

I am using transient case with double precision

Oil as primary phase and secondary phase as droplet
scheme: phase coupled SIMPLE gradient : Least sqaure method Momentum : first order upwind volume fraction: geo construct

Inlet BC: velocity for oil and droplet volume fraction zero and droplet velocity also at inlet

when i am using Outlet boundary condition
I have to define the back flow volume fraction.
initially If i give the back flow fraction as 0 the simulation running fine and give the correct tracking of interface also

For me i want to eject the droplet from the exit.But by this condition after the simulation the droplet is stuck at exit.solution gets stopped by the high courant number

Similarly i tried with outflow BC.at that time also simulation perfect upto reaching the outlet then again the simulation stopped and the droplet is not going out.

When i tried outlet boundary condition with back flow volume fraction of droplet as 1 it is showing error ->Solution diverging ..velocity diverging .Global courant number more than 250..

Please help me to eject the droplet from the channel during simulation.For that what BC should i give at outlet...

Thanking You

Hello,

I am also working on similar Project on wetting Dynamics of an indium droplet. Can you send me your files, so that I can recommend something mehmet.yigit.balta@gmail.com

Hi saajesh:

I think you should try like this:

1 Finer mesh

VOF method instead of Euler

Implicit instead of explicit

Servers:

Pressure based Coupled

Least square cell based

Quick

Quick

Small time steps (like 1e-6)

My droplet and tank project with wall adhesion worked like this

Sorry for the late answer, Good luck!

Thanks sir for reply

How i can give velocity for the droplet if i select the VOF model

I want to give different velocity for the droplet.

To study the internal external velocity vectors at differnt flow rates of discrete phase
