 November 21, 2000, 09:12 Patch #1 Eric Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am using the VOF model to simulate two phases flow in my project. I face some problems in patch function? Actually, what is the function of patch? I welcome the responses from all of you. Thank You!

So you can then start the solution with one part filled with water and another part filled with air, rather than having to wait for them to "fill up". It's quicker and more stable.

 November 27, 2000, 10:23 Re: Patch #3 Eric Guest   Posts: n/a What are the values i need to patch? How about the values of velocity of x-axis, y-axis, z-axis and etc which appear in the command box?

 November 27, 2000, 12:50 Re: Patch #4 Marco Guest   Posts: n/a With patch you are able to give an initial guess to your solution. Imagine a flow through an elbow (90 deg.) It wouldnt be reasonable to initialize the whole flow field with one initial guess for exaple in the x direction. Because after the elbow the mainflow direction is y so you can patch diffrent zones with diffrent velocities (temperature etc.)

 November 30, 2000, 23:37 Re: Patch #5 Eric Guest   Posts: n/a Dear Marco, I am not sure about what you mentioned. Let say in the case of 90 degree elbow, the flow is from -x axis to z axis. So how I going to define the patch value for the x, y, z velocity? Can you please explain it in detail? Thank you.
