Hello users, i wanted to simulate the wave pattern of a wigely hull using Fluent, pls help me how to do that and send some tips / tutorial or the procedure how i can do that using Fluent. Thank's in advance.

Hi; You must use a multiphase model includes a surface tracking algorithm. Only VOF option of Fluent provides this model. For wave propagation capturing, 3D simulation is better. I extremly recommend you that try to use a structure grid. With an unstructured grid I do not have some good results. Version 6 of Fluent is more better than old versions. I recommend you for first experience with VOF, that you model dam break. Some results about, are provided in litrature. regards

Hi!

As Roozbeh said...If possible use the newest version of fluent (I've had troubles with previous versions).Go trough tutorial problem and then work your way up...you can find a "dam break problem" in CFD book of Peric...and probabilly an a web page of tu-hamburg (lab for ship technology - or something like that) A structured grid is a must here! Also a 3d problem (I really dont know how could you simplify this to 2D????)

good luck

MATEUS

Hi!

Roozbeh i've lost your mail and also forgoten to answer your question...The value for "n" in turbulent viscosity modification was 10 in my case...(it is considered it should be between 6 and 20...). So your value 10^9 (or something) is way of...

Sam, check out the dam brake simulation on this page: http://www-waterloo.ansys.com/cfx/pr...maxwell496.mpg

Hi!

I think you can find some usefull information in:

Azuceta R: Computation of turbulent free-surface flows around ships and floating bodies, PhD thesis, Technical University of Hamburg, Hamburg

or:

Azuceta R., Muzaferija S. Peric M.: numerical simulation of flow around blunt bow model. Proc. Workshop on Numerical Simulation of Two Phase Flows, Ship Research Institute, Tokio 2001

Hope it helps,

Best regards

MATEUS
