Two Phase flow modeling in commercial softwares
 
I want to do study on two phase flow application. I want to use CFD softwares as a tool for my research. I want to know which software can model two phase flow most accurately. Is it CFX, Fluent Or starCD? Can you please help me out?

Re: Two Phase flow modeling in commercial software
 
what type of two phase are you talking about? lagrangian, e2p or free surface?

falling film simulation in commercial software
 
hi, i am interested in falling film simulation, especially the detailed information(velocity) near the free thin film surface. Which software is suitable? Thanks!

If you need sharp interfacial two-phase flow, e.g. free surface flow, VOF (geometrical) method in fluent is fine.

either of the new STAR-CD or STAR-CCM+ versions are better than fluent, the comet vof models are integrated into them and this model is pretty much the best vof model around

Flow-3D has a good VOF model. When I worked with Flow-3D a couple of years ago mr. VOF aka Hirt, was still involved with the company.

ALthough we still dont actually know what type of 2 phase that Sandeep wants so we might be flogging a dead horse!

Two Phase flow modeling in fluent
 
hi all, i am trying to find resistance of the ship using fluent and two phase model. it is obvious that we have air and water for simulating flow around a ship. i have meshed model of ship with two areas having an interface between them. can any body help me in solving a two phase flow problem by specifying the boundary coditions and the procedure or any help in this matter

Two phase flow
 
Can someone tell me a good software to use for two phase flow involving combustion.

Air/gas mixture is burnt in a furnace....The flue gases condense in the heat exchangers.....Is there a software that can model both the gaseous and liquid phase? This might help in predicting the impact of latent heat of vaporization on the total heat transfer.

One more question:

I am trying to find pressure drop across heat exchanger using a CFD software. The results are half of the test results? Why this much of error? What might be the factors inducing errors?

Thanks,
