 May 14, 2003, 21:33 gas-liquid system modeling? #1 x.p.lee Guest   Posts: n/a Hello to all How to model the flow field induced by bubbles produced in fluid? Bubbles distribute evenly beneath the bottom of the reactor with a diameter of about 1 centimeter,show in Fig.. Because of the buoyancy bubbles will be discharged from the bottom edge then drag the liquid to form a flow field. | | bottom of reactor | | |----|________________________|------| | O O O O O O ！！！-|！！bubbles | liquid | |____________________________________| I don't know how to use Fluent to model this system,and especially how to define the boundary conditions. If the bottom of the reactor is sloped, the bubbles will move in one direction along the bottom, maybe it will be easier to simulate, please tell me how to. I would appreciate any help from you, thanks!

I think your case can be simulated using Discrete phase model or Eulerian model in fluent. It depends on the result you want to get. In my opinion, DPM can give me more information about forces on the bubble and bubble trajectory, but it has volume limitation. You can read the fluent document first to decide which one you choose, and if you begin your simulation, keep in touch with and maybe we can help each other! Regards winnie

But I noticed that in DPM DEFINE Macros, you can use the DEFINE_DPM_LAW macro when you want to customize laws for particles. Maybe you can try it. Just a suggestion. Regards winnie
