I suggest you use fluent or cfx to deal with the problem of supercritical fluid, just like what I am doing now.
Thanks for your reply! Well, I found one example from your previous post, and I followed your example and I got the good result. However, I have not checked the result with the empirical formulas. If they share a huge gap, I think I will choose Fluent.
Besides, there is a problem within your simulation that the thermodynamic property input is quite complex. Because you chose the polynomial density input, but I do not how to generate the polynomial density curves for my case. Can you show me how to do that?
By the way, from your name, are you Chinese?
