 July 18, 2001, 20:49 HELP!!TWO PHASES FLOW #1 dingding Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hi,everyone! I am simulating the oil-water two phases flow. I set two inlets at LOW I of a block, one is oil water inlet and another is water inlet. I use the homogeneous model to simulate the free surface between the oil and the water. The problem is that U, V, MASS and VOLUME FRACTION of each phases don't convergence, in addition, no free surface in the CFX-analyse, why? I used a single water compuation as the START dump file, but no free surface being found! Please help me! Thanks in advance.

At oil inlet, water velocity is 0 and volume fraction is 0.0. Another inlet is water, water velocity is 0.01m/s and volume fraction is 1.0. At water inlet, oil velocity is 0 and volume fraction is 0.0. I use the laminar model to simulate this transient flow, but there are the same problem. please help me!

How have you set up your fluids? Let me know what kind of problem you are trying to simulate (i.e. free-surface, disperesed particles) and then tell me how you have set up the fluids (continous/dispersed) and which multi-phase models you are using. Also, the initial conditions will be important w.r.t. the type of simulation you are perfroming and the 'true' physical initial conditions. Jon

You have to put the same speed for the two components but different volume fraction ->inlet_oil : oil_speed=0.01 / oil_vf =1 water_speed=0.01 / water_vf=0 ->inlet_water il_speed=0.01 / oil_vf =0 water_speed=0.01 / water_vf=1 If you are using a transient simulation, and using a restart with a dump file, the command "initial guess" overwrites all the existing field. Excuse me for my poor english. Regards, Fred
