Centrifugal separator simulation
I am currently working on my Master's thesis on a Centrifugal Separator (vertical disk-stack type); I would like to do a qualitative analysis of the behaviour of a two-phase flow within the rotation bowl of the machine.
I am totally new to CFD and OpenFOAM, and I would like to start maybe with a 2D model and then, if possible, try to do something in 3D.
After taking a first look a the User's Guide, I believe there are some solvers which might be appropriate (interFoam, LTSInterFoam, settlingFoam, etc.).
Does anyone have any suggestion, hint, tip, advice on where I could start my work?
Thank you very much for the hint. I will look into it.
