 November 6, 2007, 02:30 Re: turbulence model fr Core annular flow #4 k.baker Guest   Posts: n/a the k-elsilon model one of models for turbulence you can use the standard or rng its best for multiphase flow siumlations. choosing wall treatment is important to improve your results near wall and this depend on the value of y+ (see the manual for more information about y+) but you cannot know the value of y+ before starting the simulation after the run is complete (at post-processing) you can draw a line or iso-surface at the wall then go to display contours then select turbulence>Wall Yplus then select the line or iso-surface you draw in the last step hence you will get the contours for Y+. Hence you can decide which the perfect choice for wall treatment as follows: 1) when you see y+<=5 you have to use enhanced wall treatment. 2) if your 30

 November 6, 2007, 14:58 Re: turbulence model fr Core annular flow #7 anup Guest   Posts: n/a plz help me .. i m not able to simulate core anuular flow .. ( i could only do it if i give the initial boundary condition of the inlet as a core of the fluid itself..otherwise if i give a mixture it forms just bubles n not CAF) ..plz gimme ur mail id
