 June 30, 2004, 05:12 height of water level in two-phase flows? #1 Michael Bo Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I'm trying to set up a two-phase calculation using CFX-5.7. The two fluids are water and air with air being the continuous phase. I need to use a somewhat different boundary condition for the water at the bottom of my model. I have a special device placed on a horizontal plate where the water runs out. The amount of water flow in this particular device depends on the height of the water level.( m_dot = f(Water height) ) How do I set up a boundary condition in PRE using CCL(?) that takes that into account? I have the required function for the special device from earlier experimental work. Kind regards. Michael Bo

Expression should include term density*g*(H-y). H is height of free surface(water head) and y distance along vartical direction. Define Reference pressure 0 Pa to include static head effect in P calculations and define bouncy -g in y direction. Also think about pressure reference co-ordinates. Best luck
