 May 16, 2002, 03:20 turblent multiphase flow #1 zhu Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, all, when i learn cfx4, i have a question about the standard k-epsilon model in turblent multiphase flow, such as gas-solid flow. solid phase turbulent may be laminar, so, what's the equation about k-epsilon model of solid phase? someone know this. thanks. zhu

Perhaps this formulation, turbulence for the continuous phase and laminar for the disperse phase, may be a numerical strategy to "turn off" the diffusive terms in the dipersed phase turbulence equations, perhaps. I don't know. Regards, cfd guy
