slip ratio between gas/liquid
I have a two phase model in LesInterFoam, where I need to to know the velocity for each phase (of course besides the pressure loss).
My idea was to create an additional volume flux field for one single phase like "phiLiq" via gamma(or alpha) field.
I've made a "elbow-case" like pipe (a gas flow with liquid injection) to test my idea, but it not delivered me a slip ratio.
Does anybody know a good strategy or at least could give me a hint from which value I could get the information to calculate the gas slip ?
P.S.: This might be interesting for evaporation models like interDymFoam.
interFoam is based upon the homogeneous mixture assumption. In consequence you have to live with only a mixture velocity, which in turn demands for a high resolution for both the interfacial morphology (e.g. curvature) and boundary layer.
To evaluate a reasonable local slip velocity (i.e. for under-resolved boundary layers) would need a rewrite of the solver + theoretical work considering phase interaction and interchange...
As a start you might consider the work of M. Wörner and W. Sabisch, references of whom can be found here: http://bibliothek.fzk.de/zb/berichte/FZKA6889.pdf
In case you have any further questions let me know... I am on another approach considering an interfacial flow solver employing two momentum balances, thus inherently enabling for a interfacial phase slip.
Thanks for your quick reply.
I go to check the work of these people.
I'll keep you informed, if I find a good solution.
Sure, you are welcome...
Look out for VA-VOF as this method accounts for a phase slip (momentum drift flux term).
