 June 3, 2004, 03:53 DPM problem! #1 welch Guest   Posts: n/a when i calculate a liquid-gas flow, i have to add different forces on the bubbles when they are at different positions. how can i do that? some one told me that the buoyant force of the bubbles under a sloped static solid wall could be represented by imposing the horizontal gravity acceleration conponent on the plane directly under the wall, but i still don't know how to add the gravity acceleration component on a given plane, it seemed that only in the "operating conditions window" that the gravity acceleration can be defined, by it is refer to the whole system,not to a fixed plane. would you please tell me how to do with these problems? thanks!
