Hi foamers,

I need anybody to help me on multiphase problem. Until now, I solve just turbulent flow.

Now I do not know what solver would I use?

My problem is a air turbulent flow (23 m/s with diameter of pipe = 0.5). In this flow, there are a lot of particles of water like a fog. (diameter of particule = 10-6m to 10-4 m).

So, my inlet condition is for water , the flows = 1.5L/min with U.particles = 23 m/s.
That give me alpha.particles around 10-6.

The goal of my work is with inertia and wall, it's agglomerate water to separate of air in complexe pipe.

The problem with little experience about the multiphase flow, I don't know if I could use twoPhaseEulerFoam, interFoam or an other solver.

Could you help me ?

Best regards.
