Multiphase Flows Models and Capabilities

Whether designing a hypersonic transport free from ice buildup, developing a blood enzyme test, delivering and melting rare metallic powder compounds for additive manufacturing or formulating a filtration system to provide clean drinking water in a remote location, engineers must account for the interactions between liquids, solids, and gases. Each of these varied multiphase challenges requires a different modeling approach. Review the chart below to find the Ansys models and capabilities that can solve your multiphase simulation problem.

Minimizing the Impact of Erosion

Sand erosion management is a challenge in oil and gas well exploitation and transport that is very complex and costly to monitor. Problems arise because Sand entrained in the carrying fluid impinges on the pipe and/or equipment walls and removes material, which leads to wear and premature mechanical failure. Erosion wears away the protective coating applied to metals to prevent corrosion. Erosion wear is a complex process dependent on a wide range of factors, such as configuration of the flow system, flow rate, composition and properties of the carrying fluid, loading, size and shape of entrained solid particles, and physical properties of the target material.

Designing Safer Ships Using Simulation: Ship-Hull Stability Prediction by Ansys CFD

As part of the certification process, marine surface vessels and industrial floating structures undergo rigorous stability tests to insure the maximum safety and operability under extreme weather conditions. In this on-demand webinar, we will demonstrate how CFD analysis can be used to gain insight into the stability performance of a representative Navy vessel using Ansys Fluent. The free surface effects on the vessel were simulated using the Volume of Fluid Method, while the vessel motion was resolved using the 6-DOF solver.

Speed Up CFD Spray Simulations Using the New VOF to DPM Multiphase Model – Webinar

Sprays are everywhere — emerging from nozzles, injectors, hoses and many more sources. Physical measurement used to be the only practical way to determine if a certain spray head was designed properly for a given fluid, with specified operating conditions and required droplet sizes. Simulation could provide accurate, validated results for any type of spray, but the large computational requirements limited the size of problems that one could solve, especially if the goal was to resolve very fine spray details
