 January 29, 2003, 20:54 Problem with DPM model #1 cwflying Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hi everyone,I am now using DPM modele to simulate particle movement in a hydrocyclone. In terms of hydrocyclone, it has one velocity inlet and two outflow outlets( I have set the flow weight already). First I simulate fluid flow in hydrocyclone using RSM modele( because it is strong swirling flow) then add particle injection at inlet,assuming particles having the same velocity with fluid flow at inlet, using DPM modele. The problem is: when I track particles, I find the particles only escape at inlet, not two outlets! (two axisymetrical dimension,inlet velocity for example u=0,v=-0.2m/s, w=2m/s)

I would initially guess the centrifugal field is large enough to instantly move your particles out through the inlet before they enters the domain. In addition Fluent has a bug when it comes 2-D acisymmetric particle tracking in cyclones (and probably other type of geometries), where particles lighter than the fluid move towards the wall. You can easily check if this is part of your problem with a 3-D calc of the same geometry (take a 5 deg rotational symmetric 3 D example of the same geometry).
