In a bubble column reactor two fluid air/ water is used. From the experiments and literature survey we*came to know the Mean Diameter is 4mm. Almost all previous researchers set 4mm air bubble diameter at INLET of bubble column. Here, We are using PBM too. For CFDPBM coupling we have 10 classes of different size distributions. We applied EuEu two phase models. Any guidances would be highly appreciated to tell how to set 4mm air bubble dia at INLET ? Regards How to set 4mm Initial Diameter of air bubble in Ansys Fluent ?

There could be several reasons for Divergence.
1. Check all BCs 2. Check initial condition 3. Check time step 4. Lean down the model. for e.g. do not activate nucleation, growth, agg, coalescence etc. just run the case from inlet conditions. Finally u should see no change in bubble size but 4 mm is spread in your domain based on flow. you can also reduce the classes to 5 may be first. no to turbulence. no to any complex process. just check the flow. 4. Step by step activate each phenomena 5. Check solver settings URF etc... it is important to run the model step by step and go forward to complete the model.

in my simulation, I should calculated the electric field intensity and so computing aggregation rate with writing udf in pbm model, becouse the electric field causes agregation. can I compute the electric field intensity with mhd model? and in writing udf,I do not need to calculate the field through the writing udf?
thanks

hi friends
I'm elementry in writing udf. can anyone help me to writing udf for aggregation rate, couse the electric field with AC flow in population balance model ? the equations for Ac field are available. thank Last edited by fatia; June 1, 2016 at 06:27.

Hi furqanrk
I need help for define udf code for any model i need see sample file in fluent. i read any time PBM manual but don't learn how make pbm model

The population balance module is loaded into ANSYS Fluent through the text user interface (TUI). The module can only be loaded when a valid ANSYS Fluent case file has been set or read. The text command to load the module is: define → models → addonmodule A list of ANSYS Fluent addon modules is displayed: > /define/models/addonmodule Fluent Addon Modules: 0. None 1. MHD Model 2. Fiber Model 3. Fuel Cell and Electrolysis Model 4. SOFC Model with Unresolved Electrolyte 5. Population Balance Model 6. Adjoint Solver 7. SinglePotential Battery Model 8. DualPotential MSMD Battery Model Enter Module Number: [0] 5 Select the Population Balance Model by entering the module number 5. During the loading process a scheme library containing the graphical and text user interface, and a UDF library containing a set of user defined functions are loaded into ANSYS Fluent. A message Addon Module: popbal...loaded! is displayed at the end of the loading process. Best of Luck
