## Color Spraying with Wall Film, CFD Simulation by Ansys Fluent Training

In this project, the spraying color on the wall has been simulated with Ansys Fluent software. We used one-way DPM to simulate the discrete phase. The cone injection and particle velocity are equal to the first simulation 10 with a particle diameter of 0.001 m and a spray angle of 45 °. This project aims to determine whether velocity and particle diameter affect the staining. The velocity is 20 meters per second for the second simulation, and the particle diameter is 0.1m. Also, the cone angle is 45 degrees. The DPM Boundary condition Type is wall film so that the color particles stick to the wall. The present simulation process is performed unsteady and in a time step equal to 0.0025 s.

## Geometry & Mesh

The 3D geometry of this project has been produced with SpaceClaim software. The length and width of the computational area are 3 m, and its height is 4 m.

Mesh is created with Ansys Meshing software, and the mesh type is unstructured. The number of cells is 254934.

## Color Spraying CFD Simulation

To simulate the color spraying on the wall with wall film, we consider several assumptions:

• The solver is pressure-based.
• The current simulation is unsteady in terms of time.
• We ignored the gravity effect.

Here is a summary of the steps for defining the problem and its solution in the following table:

## Color Spraying Results

In this simulation, the spray paint on the wall is simulated using an injector to insert the particles conically. According to the conical angle, the range of motion of the particles is determined.

As mentioned earlier, this project aims to determine whether increasing the velocity and diameter of color particles affects staining. At first, a simulation with a smaller diameter and velocity was performed, which had a good result. Then, in the next simulation, the velocity and diameter of the colored particles increased, so it was observed that the particles spread on the wall. In the next simulation, we reduced the spray angle so that the spraying might be done correctly, which did not happen, and the best way to paint was the first simulation.

2. Carroll Rohan

Is there a particular reason why an unstructured mesh was chosen for this Color Spraying CFD Simulation, and how does it affect the results?

• MR CFD Support

The unstructured mesh is selected for this Color Spraying CFD Simulation due to its flexibility in handling the complex geometries associated with the spraying process. It allows for refined local meshing around the regions of interest, like the spray nozzle and the wall film, ensuring accurate capturing of the spray characteristics without excessively increasing the computational cost. The mesh type influences result accuracy, convergence, and computation time, and in such simulations, an unstructured mesh can provide a more precise prediction of the spray dynamics and wall film interactions.

After the adjustment in the third run, did you manage to achieve an even paint distribution like in the first simulation?

• MR CFD Support

The third run simulation demonstrated that a reduction in spray angle did not yield an even paint distribution comparable to the first simulation. The ideal result for spray distribution was evident in the first scenario with lower particle diameter and velocity, highlighting the importance of particle properties in achieving the desired outcome.

12. Ms. Brittany Hirthe

The color spraying project provided crucial insights on impact of particle diameter and velocity. Could you detail how the increased velocity and diameter influenced the spread of the paint on the wall in terms of the physics involved?

• MR CFD Support

In the color spraying simulation, increasing the particle velocity and diameter affects the momentum of the paint particles. Higher velocity and larger particles carry more momentum, causing them to spread out more upon impact with the wall. This results in a broader and possibly less uniform distribution of paint due to greater inertia overcoming the adhesive and cohesive forces that keep the paint localized. Furthermore, larger paint drops are more affected by aerodynamic forces, leading to an increased likelihood of rebound or splatter, which can also contribute to a less precise paint application.
