centrifugal seal
hi i am working on centrifugal seals where the interface between air and a rotating liquid core is to be tracked. I am planning to do in ANSYS CFX. Anybody has done anything on this area? thanks in advance....

You must describe your problem more precize. And drawing will be important too.
Best regards

hi...thanks for the reply..can u give ur mail id..? i will send a schematic of the problem to you.I have a liquid at some pressure > atmospheric to be sealed. I am planning to used a centrifugal seal for this purpose, wherein a disc mounted on a shaft is rotated at some angular velocity. The liquid to be sealed is supplied axially to the disc on one end. Due to centrifugal action the fluid is held against gravity on the other end, there by preventing it from going out (sealing) as long as the disc rotates. I want to predict the interface between the liquid and air with CFD. I am fairly new to CFD, tired many methods, but not successful.
