 June 11, 2001, 04:33 problem in MRF and DPM method #1 you Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, All friends, I am calculating drops distribution in a baffle tank with rotating impeller (Fig. 16.2.3, pp.16-7, Fluent manual) by using the multiple reference frame in conjunction with the discrete phase model. I find the drops DPM concentration near wall is extremely high (order of 10^6 kg/m^3). Please tell me why this happens and how to get a reasonable result. Thanks you very much for your help. I am looking forward to your reply. With best regards, You

If you model a flow where particle settled your results will depend on the number of lagrangien iteration you use and it can't be very difficult to reach a real steady state solution. Remember that you inject particle with a certain mass flow rate, if there are no outlet for particles the concentration will be infinite (that's why you have 10E6 kg/m3 of particles at wall). You could try an Euler/euler multiphase model best regards Alain
