 October 15, 2004, 15:08 porous media - C1 C2 values for cylinders #1 Ralf Schmidt Guest   Posts: n/a Hi! I have a problem defining the Hi! I want to simulate the air flow (5m3/s) through a chamber (1m x1m cross section) with a group of cylinder placed in parallel to the flow (40 mm diameter and 200 mm length). There are many possible configurations of the cylinder positions. They might be placed in up to 3 levels on top of each other with or without a shift. Also number of cylinders may vary in a range of 10 to 600. example for possible cylinder configurations: I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I To avoid simulating every possible situation, I want to use the porous zone model. But I have difficulties finding the appropriate parameters for C1 and C2. When using the ergun equation suggested by the fluent manual, the Re number is to large. What happened in-between the cylinders is not important - for the first attempt. The Air flow above and below is interesting. Do you have any idea??? Thanks in advance! Ralf

 October 27, 2004, 06:40 pressure drop and flow distribution #4 Ralf Schmidt Guest   Posts: n/a Pressure drop is important but also the flow distribution on the borders of the porous medium (inlet and outlet velocity, mass flow,…). Later, the cylinders will have elevated temperature and the heat transfer to the cold gas inside the porous medium should equal the one from the cylinders. Der Druckverlust der porösen Zone ist wichtig, aber auch die Verteilung der Strömung um die Zone herum (ein- und auslass Geschwindigkeit, Massenstrom,...) Später sollen die Zylinder erhitzt werden und der Wärmeübergang der Zylinder an das kalte Gas soll mit dem im porösen Medium übereinstimmen.

 October 27, 2004, 09:55 Re: pressure drop and flow distribution #5 Hannibal Guest   Posts: n/a Hallo nochmal, In deinem fall kannst du C1 und C2 etweder aus einem analytischen Betrachtung oder aus expliziten Berechnungen der aufgelösten Geometrie bestimmen, in dem du den Druckverlust gleich setzt. Ähnliches Problem mit dem Wärmeübergang (Nusseltzahl) wirst du überigens haben!!! (Bei der Aufgabenstellung weiss ich nicht ob es sinnvoll ist ein (isotopes)Porousmediamodell zu nehmen Gruß!

 October 27, 2004, 13:35 Re: pressure drop and flow distribution #6 Ralf Schmidt Guest   Posts: n/a Is there a (simple) possibility, to calculate the resistance of a (large) number of cylinders, placed behind or above each other or in mixed configuration? To simulate each cylinder configuration separately should be avoided in order to minimize computing time and model complexity. The porous model in Fluent gives the possibility to set anisotropic C1 and C2 values -------------- Gibt es eine (einfache) Möglichkeit, den Widerstand einer Vielzahl von hintereinander, übereinander und durcheinander stehenden Zylindern analytisch zu berechnen? Die explizite Betrachtung der Geometrie soll gerade vermieden werden, um das Simulationsmodell zu vereinfachen. Das Porositätsmodell in Fluent erlaubt, anisotrope Werte für C1 und C2 zu setzen.

Let me fill free to ask you for help, if you can send me theoretical mathematical model or softver for solving this problem. Thank's
