The present problem simulates the two-phase flow of air and water inside a Hydrocyclone by ANSYS Fluent software.

The simulation is based on a reference article, “Effects of curvature radius on separation behaviors of the Hydrocyclone with a tangent-circle inlet,” Its results are compared and validated with the results in the article.

The geometry of this model consists of a water inlet and two pressure outlets and is modeled in the Design Modeler. It has meshed in ANSYS meshing. The mesh type used for this geometry is unstructured. The total element number is 228517.

Hydrocyclone Methodology

This project simulates a two-phase flow of water and air inside a Hydrocyclone. The water will enter the computational domain tangentially with a velocity of 6m/s based on the paper.

The Reynolds Stress Model is exploited to solve fluid flow equations, and the VOF multiphase model is used to investigate the phase interactions of the water and air core. The present simulation and its results are transient.

Hydrocyclone Conclusion

At the end of this simulation, the results of the present work are compared and validated with the results obtained by the paper. For this purpose, the diagram in figure 10 shows the changes in the axial velocity of the fluid mixture based on the radial position of the Hydrocyclone.

    The Hydrocyclone simulation sounds complex. Was it challenging to get the multiphase model to accurately reflect the paper’s results, and how did you ensure the validation was thorough?

      Thank you for your interest! In a simulation as sophisticated as the one for the Hydrocyclone with a tangent-circle inlet, achieving accuracy in replicating the results from the paper requires meticulous attention to detail in setting up the multiphase model. Validation is ensured through a diligent comparison of the simulation results with those presented in the reference paper, including similar measurements of critical parameters such as axial velocity profiles and phase distribution. Parameters such as inlet velocity, turbulence modeling (using the Reynolds Stress Model in this case), and phase interaction (handled by the VOF multiphase model) are all carefully calibrated to achieve a high level of congruence with the findings of the reference study. The transient nature of the results also plays a pivotal role, as it considers time-dependent behaviors that can be crucial to understand the dynamics within the Hydrocyclone.

    I wonder if you can also consider oil as a third phase in this simulation?

      MR CFD Support

      In the specific simulation detailed in this product, only the two-phase flow of air and water is modeled and validated against the reference paper. Additional phases, such as oil, can be introduced into a simulation using multiphase models such as VOF, but it would require additional setup, boundary conditions adjustment, and potential validation against experimental or literature data for accurate results.

    I was fascinated by the accuracy of the simulation compared to the published article’s data. Could you explain how the validation process helped ensure the reliability of the simulation results?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      In the validation process, we carefully compared the simulation output with the experimental or numerical data presented in the referenced article. The axial velocity profiles and separation efficiency, among other factors, were examined to ensure that the simulation predictions were consistent with the published results. Matching these variables helps confirm the accuracy of our numerical model and the physical parameters used. This rigorous comparison allows us to have confidence in the simulation’s ability to reproduce realistic behaviors within a hydrocyclone system.

    I am impressed by the comparison and validation against a reference article. Could you tell me more about the results? Were they closely matching with the existing literature?

      Thank you for your kind words about our simulation comparison. Yes, the results of our simulation matched very well with the results presented in the reference article. For instance, the changes in the axial velocity of the fluid mixture based on the radial position were well-captured, ensuring that our model successfully replicates the hydrocyclone’s intricate flow dynamics described in the article.
