Ranque-Hilsch Vortex Tube
Hi CFD'ers

Has anyone been able to successfully simulate the strange effects of a Ranque-Hilsch Vortex Tube using CFD/CFX?

We have tried but get a uniform temperature distribution over the whole domain.

Would anyone be willing to share experiences with respect to boundary conditions and geometrical configurations? (or reference cases)

Any info would be much appreciated

Thanks in advance

Numerical investigations of the compressible flow and the energy separation in the Ranque-Hilsch vortex tube

They used CFX (probably 4, is not mentioned in the article)
