multiphase equations
hello, can any one give the reference for the derivation of governing equations of multiphase equations(mixture modelparticularly) used by FLuent.
thanks in advance. prasanth 
Re: multiphase equations
Hi!
There's not much to say about multiphase equations in fluent. They are the normal Navier Stokes equations with the exeption that you have a mixture fluid. You can find the derivation of the Navier  Stokes equations in any book about fluid mechanics/fluid dynamics or cfd. The assumption of mixture model is that you treat two (or more) fluids as one fictive continuum, which is defined by density and viscosity of both fluids: ro=alpha*rho_f1+(1alpha)*rho_f2 mu=alpha*mu_f1+(1alpha)*mu_f2 alpha is Volume fraction of specific fluid...

Re: multiphase equations
thanks for your kind reply. I know whatever you said. since i studied documentation, even in 6.1 version too.... i want some reference where such equations are derived. since that involves so many interface phenomena. thnks indeed!!!

Re: multiphase equations
hi,
you have to do what we call some discretisation of equation, using some numerical methods models. Have you done some numerical analysis? You can have a look at this article: http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/~katz/S...esub_SLCN.pdf You may get a better picture of what it is about and the results you can obtain with it. I hope this helps David 
Re: multiphase equations
Hi Prasanth, Fluent 6.1 gives the reference book titled "On the mixture model for multiphase flow" written by Mikko Manninen & Veikko Taivassalo. I hope you can find the details of that model there. Best regards, Zwdi

Re: multiphase equations
hai DAVID, thank for ur reply.. yeah I do know about discretisation. I have done course in "numerical methods in thermal engineering" which covers FDM,FVM basically. but i do mean about multiphase equations. thanks again prasanth

Re: multiphase equations
hai ZWDI, thanks for your reply. i have seen it in reference. reference no. 163. thank you. I have to find out, how far it is, also whether that book will be available.. thanks again

Re: multiphase equations
Hi Prasanth, You can find it from the website of that company. Good luck Zwdi

Re: multiphase equations
Dear ZWDI, Yeah, I got it yesterday; I typed the key word as VTT Publishers after the trials with the title and after searching my institute library website. The I got the link to PDF files of all years.It is of 67 pages. THank you once again prasanth
