 December 4, 1999, 11:39 two-phase flow in cyclone #1 xwwang Guest   Posts: n/a I am calculating the two phase flow in the cyclone separators using FLUENT . I want to calculate the two-phase flow to predict the efficiency of the cyclone. The two-phase model may be Discrete phase model using the Random Walk Model or the Algebric Slip Model. I encountered some problems in the calculating prosess.Could someone help me? I will be very grateful for your help.

It would be interesting to compare the two basic ways of determining theoretical sampler efficiency against experiment. Are you also considering that as well? Its always good to start with laminar models -which you may have already done- even for swirling flow as would be expected occur in a cyclone since the solution of full n.s. will still result in vortices. And, final comment is that if you're interested in cyclone collection efficiency are you concerned with internal flow within the cylone, or just the particle trajectories as they enter the cyclone, i.e. is it a question of inlet efficiency (outside the cylone) or separation efficiency (inside the cyclone), or both?

(i am not sure for Dust outlet and gas outlet) 2. how to calculate efficiency? i have set the injection from inlet in DPM, but i kept it off at the start of run, after sometime i switch that on. i have all details of particle size and numbers. please give me the detail information regarding the same. if you have some case please share with me. Thank you for anticipation.

 July 8, 2016, 07:28 #6 New Member   ali Join Date: Jul 2016 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 2 Dear All, I want to simulate industrial cyclone separators by MPPICFoam too. For that, I draw a cyclone configuration in SolidWork and producted a STL file, Now I should product grids (meshes) by editing blockMeshDict and then snappyHexMesh... 1- How should I change the blockMeshDict file (vertices, blocks, edges, boundary...) of OpenFoam example and then snappyHexMesh? 2- Should I change the dimensions of the industrial cyclone in OpenFoam? please help me. Thanks
