 November 20, 2012, 12:53 Two inlets! One air and one mix of gases #1 New Member   dary Join Date: Nov 2012 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 6 Hi, Iam new here. want to see if anyone can help me with a fluent case. I want to see how the gases mixes. So I have two inlets that goes into one "basket" with different velocity and temperature for the inlets: One inlet with air and one inlet with 0.122 of H2, 0.21 of CO2, 32.2 of H2O and 34 of N2. I need help with how to set-up this in Fluent.

There you can also set the number of phases to 5. Than just add the materials (gases) you need under "Material" and assign the gases to the five different phases under "Phases".

That's the clue - having different phases... I think I don't understand what you try to say, this does not make sense at all to me.

 November 21, 2012, 11:17 #5 New Member   dary Join Date: Nov 2012 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 6 Sry but as I said iam new with this. What I did now is i created phases for each gas and when setting BC I choose air for one onlet and for the other inlet i choose the created phases with their volume fractions. Thats how you mean it should be ?? again thanx for ur time.

 November 21, 2012, 11:55 #7 New Member   dary Join Date: Nov 2012 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 6 Just got me, this is not a multiphase problem. Not that advanced. I just need to simulate the behavier of the air and these components how they mixes. I think I should use species for this? Or any other suggestions?

More in general, when fluids mix at a molecular level the problem is multi-species; when the mix is macroscopic, then the problem is multiphase. Daniele

 November 23, 2012, 11:32 #10 New Member   dary Join Date: Nov 2012 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 6 Hi, thank you both for the help. i used species and i found out that that is a good approuch. I have another question: i have load = 0.0392mol/sec how to I put that as velocity inlet??? thank you guys

 November 29, 2012, 00:44 #11 New Member   Johnny Join Date: Aug 2012 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 7 Sure you need to use multispecies model. You need to convert the mol to volume, for example 24.79 dm3/mol at 25 °C.and calculate the velocity according to your inlet area. After you define the inlet velocity, you need to specify different percentage for each specie

Could you please let me know how to choose air for one of the inlet? I already got the fraction choice. btw, if possible for us to simulate with the inlet flow rate change along with time? Thanks a lot!
