 April 28, 2016, 08:42 Multiphase Flow Properties varying with temperature! #1 New Member   Francesca Guardavaccaro Join Date: Feb 2015 Posts: 9 Rep Power: 10 Hello everyone and thank you in advance for your help! I have to simulate an internal multiphase flow with properties like density, dynamic viscosity, etc. varying with temperature. So far it has been performed an isothermal simulation. I would like to understand which is the best model setup and how to set/manipulate for example the polynomial density. Unfortunately I'm not an expert and this post may be really confusing, sorry about that. Anyone could help?! Star CCM+ manual is no longer helping me.

Than make sure your temperature dependent tables cover the temperature range you limit. You might want to do things like gas phase is constant density, liquid phase is temperature dependent, does it converge, than try both. Make sure your temp data is smooth, no large jumps and such remember multiphase convergence is an art form, have fun
