Dear all

I'd like to simulate micro-bubble flow in a tank.
Which solver is more appropriate for such a flow simulation ?

Computational conditions are as follows:
  • Water including micro bubble with specified particle size distributions flows into a tank from inlet and discharges from outlet
  • Flow is in lamiar, or hopefully RAS turbulence models are applicable in a tank
  • Bubbles are dissipated (smaller size bubbles will get into a larger size bubble )
  • Lift/drag forces should be considered
  • OF 2.3.x/2.4.x/OF-ext 3.1 are available
Sincerely yours,
