3D,Solid-Liquid simulation in stirred tank
I am new in CFD but I am working with 3D simulation of mixing-tank bioreactor with 2 phases involved for the moment(water as fluid and beads as solid and the initial solid vol fraction is about 0.3)(3-phase simulation are waiting to be solved afterward).My system have 2 radial impeller with no buffle.
I used Eulerian(granular) multiphase model to investigate the suspension of beads(solid particles)by turn on the time-dependence option...... At first ,I run the simulation with Multi-reference frame(MRF). After getting the converged solution.....I check the average value of solid vol fraction....it appeared to be about zero( instead of about 0.3) which look weird.
But,then, I find the limitations of the Eulerian Multiphase model that it cannot be used with sliding or deforming meshes.(from fluent user's guide vol.2 page9-5 )
My question is..... Is the fixed velocity( as an impeller model instead of MRF or sliding mesh) become the only way I can use to deal with my simulation ??....(according to limitation I mentioned) Any more suggestion are gladly welcome.
Thank you in advance.

Hi, i am also working on two phase simulation now (water and glass beads),I think u can use the SG method for your simulation,but using MFR can get you steady state result, if the volume fraction is 0 instead of 0.3 using MFR, maybe there is something wrong with other parameter setting, not due tot the MFR method?...
Hope you will figure it out...
