 May 31, 2000, 03:29 mixing determination #1 M. A. Rakib Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I am using FLUENT 5 for mixing simulation. I want to quantify mixing by injecting pulse tracer and then track the transient spread of these tracers. I want the concentration of these tracers at different locations in a flow domain. Can you please comment on how I can achieve this. I dont want to see the pathlines only., but to define an injection, with a known number of particles and then find out the tracer concentration concentration at different positions. I would be very grateful

You can always use PDF method in this case if you have turbulent incompressible flow best regards

The energy equation is always available, and it has both the convection and diffusion effect. (3). It is hard to make the particle to show the effect of diffusion. The graphical particle path follows only the velocity field, so, no diffusion is included. (4). So, I think, it is much easier to track the temperature field to see the degree of mixing.

Can you suggest how I can define the tracer injection as follows: -- ~100 tracers injected at the inlet. -- 50% of these tracers, i.e. 50 tracers are colored black. -- Rest 50%, i.e. 50 tracers are differently colored, viz. gray. Thanks.

But I am exploring the case when the same fluid is being taken out and circulated back. For this case I have to take help of tracers. Now I want to use color coding. Can you please suggest how I can define the injection color. e.g. I want 50% of the tracers black, and 50% gray.
