Comparison between Eulerian and Lagrangian Models
Hello People,
I am trying to simulate a 2 phase flow (water & air) and I want to use both models: Euler-Euler (multi-fluid) and Euler-Lagrange (particle transport); The geometry is as ladle fulfilled with water and there is a gas injection point positioned on the ladle base center. The water was set as turbulent. I am considering the buoyancy effects. I simulated with both models and I get the following results: * the shape of the velocity fields are the same; * the velocity values of the Eulerian case are like 8 times higher than in the Lagrangian case; * the turbulent quantities (k and eps) for the liquid phase are very larger in the Eulerian case; I set the same drag coefficient (Cd=0.44) for both phases, as a test, just to be sure that I was using the same value; The question is, why the velocity values are so smaller with the Lagrangian model? I'd appreciate you help. Regards, Ricardo Damian |
