Default DPM Modelling: Colloid droplet evaporation

Posts: n/a
Hi- This is a long message to make my case clear. If anyone is able, please help.

Case: -Running a DPM model to tracking evaporating droplets.

-Specific to my desired product, the evpaoration rate should drop corrsponding to the droplet moisture content.

-Implemented a UDF droplet drying model which returns the droplet saturated surface vapour pressure correponding to the droplet mositure for 80% volatile droplet.

-Arbitrarily set the boiling point very high to activate only the built-in evaporation model.

Problem: -There is a sudden drop in particle mass throughout the evaporation preiod towards the end of of the evaporation curve wher the volatile component is ~4%. The final volatile component after the drop is 0%.

-Please go to the link attached below for the illustration. this is an enlargement of the final section fo the curve.

-Not sure why is this happening. Try to debug the UDF. It should give a continuous saturation pressure. After the drop, the evaporation model is not activated anymore.

-Is this a FLUENT built-in limitation? Anyone has idea how to overcome this?

Worried, Woo

Another picture illustrating my problem. this is the enlargement of the droplet mass vs time curve towards the end of the evaporation period.
