Dear friends. Could you answer my question? I try to simulate two-phase flow in hydrocyclone. I calculated one-phase flow using RSM. Now I'd like to calculate tow-phase flow. What type of model I should use for calculating of second phase. Thank you for your answer. Victor

Re: hydrocyclone
It depends of your phase load.

For low load (volume fraction < 10%) which is the case in most cyclone DPM modeling (lagrangian approach) should be fine.

Best regards

Re: hydrocyclone
Eulerian-Eulerian multiphase flow model or DPM(Discrete Phase Model).

It depends on the mass loading of second phase, particle(or bubble size) and so on ......

Sincerely, Jinwook
