solimcfd is on a distinguished road
Hi, I am trying to simulate the flow of a metal powder into a capsule with FLUENT. In principle I have the powder and the air in the caspule, two phases. As the powder flows into the capsule it displaces the air. My goal is to determine the density of the powder in the capsule after the filling process.
I am knew to FLUENT so I am not so sure how to approach this problem.
Which model would be better to use, the Mixture or Euler? I would appreciate any suggestions or help. Thanks
