 November 13, 2013, 22:26 simulation of particles transport and deposition in a pipe flow #1 Member   Iman Join Date: Nov 2013 Posts: 37 Rep Power: 12 Hi every body, I'm a CFD beginner. I need to use CFX for modelling water flowing in a 0.45 m diameter, 5 m long pipe with oily semi-solid particles flowing in it. the pipe should be inclined and some of the particles will stick to the interior walls (forming deposits) and some will just move on with the flow. I would like to know what are all the necessary data/conditions that I need to have in order to complete my model, if I want to try the system in steady and unsteady, transient and turbulent mode. 2D and 3D thanks in advance

Then you can choose the models in CFX suitable for your fluid and model it. You might have to develop your own model for things like wall clumping and dragging.

I'm not sure how to decide the boundary conditions in CFX for this case since I don't have experimental data on hands, any advice?
