 January 30, 2005, 13:56 Re: MFIX #2 ap Guest   Posts: n/a MFIX is a standalone FORTRAN code which uses the Eulerian model to solve problems related to gas-solid flows. You can find it at http://www.mfix.org Fluent implements a part of the features offered by MFIX, but it's a lot easier to use. Regards, ap

 January 30, 2005, 14:43 Re: MFIX #4 ap Guest   Posts: n/a I works with FLUENT 6.1.22. It can manage the solid phase both with a Eulerian and a Langrangian approach. You have to chose on the basis of the volume fraction of the solid particles in your flow. If you're over 10%, you have to use the Eulerian model, while if you're under 10% you should consider the Langrangian approach (Discrete Particle Model). If you give more details on the system you want to simulate, i'll be more specific. Regards, ap

 February 2, 2005, 10:04 Re: MFIX #7 ap Guest   Posts: n/a If you use the Eulerian model, you specify the diameter of the solid particles in the Define -> Phases -> Set panel. For the DPM, the diameter is set in the Define->Model->Discrete phase -> Injection -> Create panel. Regards, ap

 February 3, 2005, 12:53 Re: MFIX #8 masood yooceframandi Guest   Posts: n/a dear ap! thank you for useful guidance. now,i want to describe my project for you: ***simulation of fluidized bed drying using fluent*** a wet-solid flow(like as polypropylene which is wetted with an volatile liuid like as heptane-weight percent of liquid in solid id 50%)which is consist of wet-particle(average diameter of solid=0.5mm)enter to a vertical cylinder from top.a hot gas flow(air with temp=400K)enter to the cylider from bottom.a perforated plate is installed at the bottom of cylinder for uniform flow of hot gas.hot gas has two duty: 1-heating of wet-solid to evaporate the liquid of that,2-fluidization of wet-particles.during this process,volatile liquid evaporates and enter to the hot gas phase and exit from top of the cylinder.and solid which is dryed,exit from bottom.this process is continious. now i want to help me for modelling of this system in fluent. i want to know step by step filling of all of section in DPM-model and EULER-model. i'll be very greatful for your useful guidance,my dear friend! king regards masood

 February 3, 2005, 16:56 Re: MFIX #9 ap Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Masood, first of all, with such an high solid particles volume fraction, you can't use the DPM model. The Eulerian model is suitable for such a kind of flow, but the mass transfer has not been implemented in FLUENT 6.1 (it is in FLUENT 6.2). If you want to use FLUENT 6.1, you need to add the transport equations needed to model the mass transfer during the drying process. However FLUENT 6.2 will be released in February, so you could decide to wait for it. P.S. Step by step setup of the DPM and Eulerian models are explained in FLUENT manual. Just read the proper sections and do the tutorials. Regards, ap

 February 4, 2005, 18:20 Re: MFIX #11 ap Guest   Posts: n/a FLUENT 6.1 does not implement the species transport in the Eulerian model. So you need to add the equations of the species transport you need to model the drying process. All other transport equation are implemented in FLUENT. You just need to add the lacking ones. I don't know the price of FLUENT 6.2. I work in a university so I don't directly buy the license. Regards, ap sadeghsalehi likes this.
