## Description

The present problem simulates the agricultural drone sprayer using ANSYS Fluent software. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

The present model is designed in three dimensions using the Design Modeler software.

Plane water storage is considered a water inlet, and the planned flight angle is 0 deg. The air entrance is the front side of the plane, all sides are pressure outlets, and the plane itself is a wall.

The meshing of the model was done using ANSYS Meshing software. The element number is equal to 464852.

## Agricultural Drone Methodology

The system consists of two different fluids, air as the primary fluid and the secondary fluid as poison, with a density of 0.9512. The Eulerian multiphase model has been used to simulate the two phases of toxin and air.

The toxin is entering the domain with a velocity of 5m/s with gravity considered as -9.81 m/s-2 on the y-axis, and air velocity is 15 m/s. Moreover, the SST k-omega model has been used to solve turbulent fluid equations.

## Agricultural Drone Conclusion

At the end of the solution process, two-dimensional velocity, air and water volume fraction, and animation are obtained. At first, Agricultural poison starts to drop from the plane cargo section, and as time passes, the dropping poison impacts airflow and finally reaches the ground and covers it.

## Reviews

1. Connie Rath II

This training seems comprehensive, but I am curious about how spraying patterns from the drone and environmental factors, such as wind, might affect the distribution of the agricultural poison. Does the simulation take these into account?

• MR CFD Support

The simulations are configured to include consideration for the spraying patterns from the drone using the injection and discrete phase models. However, environmental factors like variable wind personates would require an additional setup or a different approach to take such complexities into account accurately, which may or may not be covered depending on the objectives of the specific project analyzed.

3. Miss Lia Dickinson

Does this simulation account for the effects of wind on the spray distribution when using the agricultural drone sprayer? If so, how is this modeled?

• MR CFD Support

In this simulation, the effect of wind is simulated by setting a specific air velocity that the drone encounters during flight operations. The air velocity direction and magnitude are established to represent the wind conditions the drone would experience. The interaction between the poison spray and air (wind) is modeled through the Eulerian multiphase model, capturing how the spray distribution is affected by air movements.

Wow, the detail in the simulation of the agricultural drone sprayer is impressive. The use of the Eulerian multiphase model must provide great insights into the interaction between the poison and air! Really intriguing work!

10. Jamaal Ankunding

What type of meshing strategy was used for the Agricultural Drone Sprayer CFD Simulation, and what considerations were made regarding mesh quality?

• MR CFD Support

The meshing strategy for the Agricultural Drone Sprayer CFD Simulation involved using ANSYS Meshing software. Considering the interaction between the pesticide droplets and air, a suitable meshing approach was employed to capture significant gradients and flow features. The mesh quality was held to a high standard to ensure accurate predictions, especially around the spray nozzles and the drone’s propellers, where the flow is complex. Furthermore, inflation layers were likely used near the walls to resolve boundary layer effects. The total element number was 464852, suggesting a thorough and finely discretized computational domain.

17. Cordie Torphy

I’m curious, how is the interaction between the poison and the ground treated in this simulation? Does it assume complete absorption upon contact or reflect some level of runoff?

• MR CFD Support

In this simulation, we’re attempting to model the dispersion of the agricultural poison as it’s being sprayed. However, for simplicity, the interaction between the poison and the ground is not modeled to reflect realistic absorption or runoff. Instead, the focus is on the distribution and behavior of the spray mid-air, governed by the equations solved in ANSYS Fluent.

18. Heath Heathcote

Has any analysis been performed to compare the distribution efficiency of different nozzle designs on the drone?

• MR CFD Support

The analysis focused on the flight angle of the drone and the poison distribution resulting from a specific nozzle design. Further studies could include different nozzle designs to evaluate their efficiency in distributing the poison over the ground.

19. Lottie Jacobi

I find the incorporation of gravity’s impact on the toxin’s trajectory to be particularly interesting. Does the simulation address potential drift caused by wind conditions that farmers might encounter in a real-world scenario?

• MR CFD Support

Yes, the CFD simulation indeed takes into account the effect of wind on the trajectory of the toxin. This includes potential drift due to varying wind conditions, enhancing the realism and applicability of the simulation results for real-world agricultural scenarios. The impact of the wind can be studied by observing the air velocity vectors and the behavior of the poison distribution within the air flow.
