 July 14, 2012, 22:02 Help with slug flow fluent #1 New Member   Beann Carlos Join Date: Jul 2012 Posts: 17 Rep Power: 13 Greetings, I am new to the community, I write to ask advice on how to simulate slug flow in fluent, and it's my job to get the undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, I want to know which model to use? VOF, Euler, and what would be the values ​​used in the setup, I work with water and air as fluids default, I would like to know if I have to be calculated using correlations before introducing fluent values​​. thanks

I use water and air as fluids, know where I can get the speeds? the pipe has a diameter of 0.5mm, a length of 60D, air and water entering through a pipe perpendicular to the main pipe length of 30D.

Hello,

you may refer to this paper - CFD and ERT investigations on two-phase flow regimes in vertical and horizontal tubes, Parvareh, A. in order to get further information about the boundary values.

You may use two velocity or mass flow inlets and a pressure outlet.

If you want, send me and email and I send this paper to you. Its size exceed the limit of the forum.

I just send a private message to my email address for you to help me and send me the paper about what you told me.
