 October 4, 2010, 10:01 Help with discrete phase model(DPM) in rain simulation(airfoil) #1 New Member   Join Date: Sep 2010 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 7 Hi i really need some help with the DPM in fluent. I am trying to model heavy rain(1000mm/h) simulation with a NACA0012 c=1 airfoil at Re=3*10e6 but i cant find any help at the web. I read some other threads hear along with the fluent tutorial and this is what i have understand so far: For coupled simulation i have solved first the continuous phase flow field : Re=3*10^6 steady state with the standard fluent6 solver options viscus model: K-E 2-eqn realizable/enhanced wall treatment and standard model constants after it converged i went to the dpm monitor and choose 1)Interaction with continuous phase box( for 2-way coupled) 2)unsteady particle traction ( because i want spray breakup with TAB model) i do not know what to do with Particle time step Size and Number of Time Steps Tracking tab left standard options Physical Models enabled spray brakup with TAB(y0=0) I also have problems with the Injections.. appreciate any advise or hint please (where can i find tutorials for dpm?)

Hi Haris,

You can find dpm tutorials on web, if you type Fluent DPM. I believe, DPM tutorials are also available on cfd-online.com as well. I see you have a very interesting problem to solve.

Try searching for journal or conference in your area, so you can relate your problem with them.
