Modelling Water Drop Out
I am looking at whether it is possible to model the rate of water condensation on a pipe wall downstream of a pipeline Tee. I have a hot and a cold stream coming together and mixing, which results in condensation in the gas phase.
Are there software models available to model this sort of situation? Are there any free tools - I don't have lots of money to look at this.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Modelling Water Drop Out
It depends on the level of detail that you need.
RELAP5 was developed for analyzing thermal-hydraulic transients in nuclear power systems and will track condensation (steam quality) in piping systems. It's a 1-D code, so you will only be able to see quality vary with distance along the run of piping.
A CFD code (like CFD-ACE+) will allow you to look at condensation using an enthalpy based method that will provide a greater level of detail on spatial variation. It, however, is not free.
