Solid-liquid separation
I used the Euler model in the section of multiphase model to solve solid-liquid separating question, but I am not familar with the model and paramaters setting. So the results are not satisfied. Does someone else who have made similar caculation can give me some idea on how to deal with solid-liquid separating problem?

Re: Solid-liquid separation
Try giving some more information about your case. Are you modeling sedimentation or what?

However, if the solid is a powder or it's granular, you should use the Granular option while defining phases. There is a tutorial about this model applied to an impeller.

To obtain good results you have to choose the drag law with care. Read the manual for available laws.
