hi ,
i'm trying to simulate airflow reactor using where the reactor are filled with water and air is injected in the almost middle of the column , here is my setting and problem description
turbulence >k-epsilon>dispersed
i tried many cases for interaction , also solvers but it keep giving me revers flow !!
the boundary conditions for
air ( dispersed phase ) u=0.6m/s (Secondary phase )
air volume fraction = 1 cause only air is injected
no outlet in the system
also i used marked to inject the air with (0 volume fraction in the cell zone)

any suggestion plz
what is the wrong with my setting ?
which gives a reversed flow ??

Dear Zain,

How exactly are you simulating a reactor that has an inlet but no outlets? That doesn't work, right?

Where do you get the reversed flow? I guess for the air inlet your boundary condition is a velocity inlet - so I guess it is not there?

hi Cees
thanks for your reply
the revers flow happened in few cells after entrance
the reactor have only gas in and gas out and liquid are contained in the reactor
i figure out my mistake it was with the turbulence model i used dispersed model for multiphase and that mean the turbulence will be in the secondary phase and partially in the primary phase while i should use mixture where the turbulence happen in both phases by this setting the effect of gas phase will make the liquid move in the right direction .
thank you for your attention

cheers !
