Default CFX vs. FLUENT in multiphase models
Posts: n/a
i am a FLUENT user who faced a problem in FLUENT, and i wonder if CFX can provide a solution.

i am using the Eulerian-Eulerian multiphase model to model the atomization characteristics of an airblast atomizer. the problem is FLUENT does not provide a mean to calculate the SMD of the droplets unless the lagrangian approach is used which is not appropiate for my problem.

the question is : can CFX provide a mean to calculate the SMD of the droplets (or any characteristic diameter) using the Eulerian approach ?

thanks in advance

please clarify your application , is the material water or steam? if your problem engages with wetness condition of steam in multiphase modeling,i suggest you read this manual: steam jet tutorial in CFX . excuse me if my offer not applicable for you.
