I agree with you that a two phase flow can not be modeled in 1D unless the densities are so close to each other or the gravity (or other body forces) does not have any effect on the flow for various reasons. The radial segragation is the main reason these flows are difficult CFD cases and so if the effect of 2nd dimension is ignored I am not sure what is left. Now as you may know people are discussing whether the KTGF is the cause or effect of the radial segragation in vertical flows. All said I still think if Saleem wants to try a 1D case he should go ahead and do it. The results should be studied very carefully since it may be too simplistic. I ran a 1D fluent model but the flow was superimposed and all I cared about the model was to compare the kinetics that I had used in the UDF and verify the correctness of the equations with a 1D kinetic model.

Now my questions are: (1)what could be the possible reason for this problem? and what action should be taken for dealing with this? (2)In addition, what kind of monitoring varibles are suited to judge whether the final results are convergent or not? In my simulation I used the area-integral gas/solid mass flux at different axial sampling section-area. Do you have other recommendation? Please give your ideas.

In many two-phase cases the flow behavior is of oscillatory nature as the gravity and drag are acting against each other. There are other cases that you can reach a steady solution. Check the mass balance over a period of time (3-5 times the period) and once the time average mass balance is zero, you have a quasi steady solution. How does the mass flux that you are monitoring look like with time?

 April 16, 2007, 15:17 Re: How can I make FLUENT solve 1D problem #24 Danny Guest   Posts: n/a The gas-solid CFB sytem is air & FCC_particle. Their densities are 1.225 kg/m3 and 1700 kg/m3,respectively. I do not try the time-averaged solution because it takes long time. So, I attacked directly for the steady-state solution. The monitored mass fluxes become level-off after a number of iterations. Ny the way,the viscous model in my simulation is laminar flow. The intial field is zero for all variables. That is all the details.

 May 2, 2007, 07:52 Re: sloshing #27 Phil Guest   Posts: n/a what do you mean? If the liquid is sloshing in a tank that also contains air or any other gas then it is a free surface flow and you need to use the multi-phase tools. As you want to see how the fluid changes with time you need the unsteady solver. Phil

 May 3, 2007, 04:15 Re: sloshing #29 Phil Guest   Posts: n/a i haven't worked directly on this but have you done all the multi-phase tutorials?

 May 4, 2007, 02:48 Re: sloshing #30 sudhir Guest   Posts: n/a no. just learning basics in FLUENT.

 May 4, 2007, 09:00 Re: sloshing #31 Phil Guest   Posts: n/a doing the multiphase or VOF (I think) tutorials wouldn't take long and would give you these guidelines. Look into these methods in the user guide and see which is best suited. WHY DON'T PEOPLE JUST DO THE TUTORIALS OR REFER TO THE USER GUIDE INSTEAD OF SAYING "DO MY WORK AND GIVE ME THE ANSWER ASAP! NO PLEASE OR THANKS".

 May 6, 2007, 07:49 Re: sloshing #32 Phil Guest   Posts: n/a One of my colleagues does free surface flows for his PhD so I would be best to forward your question to him. I'll get him to post a response on this thread in the next few days. Phil

 January 17, 2014, 07:04 Problem with 1D problem #33 Member   Join Date: Dec 2013 Posts: 53 Rep Power: 3 Hi everyone!!! I am trying to simulate a 1d heat transfer in a medium confined between two large walls (top and bottom wall). I created a 2d rectangle in icem cfd. For top and bottom lines I have given the boundary conditions as walls. But I am not clear what boundary condition I should use for left and right lines which are not supposed to be present. (I created them only for meshing).. Pls reply.
