Hello all,

I am trying to model nanofluid flow over a 2D circular cylinder using mixture model based multi-phase approach.

In literature, I see that the effective properties of the mixture are calculated using theoretical models. But, FLUENT by default calculates it by averaging.

I understand that a UDF can be written to this.

But, I am unable to guess to which property this UDF must be assigned. Because, in boundary conditions and material properties only the particle and basefluid properties are required to be feeded.

Please help me understand this.

Thanks in advance.

Happy New Year.
