## Multi-Phase Flow in an Injector CFD Simulation, ANSYS Fluent Tutorial

In this project, ANSYS Fluent software simulates Multi-Phase Flow in an Injector. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

The present model is designed in three dimensions using the Design Modeler. Three ducts have a square cross-section for water flow, a conical-shaped area, and a cylindrical chamber. The meshing of the present project has been done using ANSYS Meshing software. The element number is 102752.

## Injector Methodology

The VOF Multi-Phase model, which consists of air and water flows, is used. Water flows through three curved ducts into a reservoir that only has airflow inside its space.

The curved structure of the ducts and the cone-shaped state on the air-filled tank distributes the water flow vortices into the injector, thereby discharging the water out of the surroundings of the cylindrical chamber (near the chamber wall) of the injector.

The water flow enters through the inlet boundary with a mass flow rate of 0.01kg/s. Moreover, the standard k-epsilon model is enabled to solve turbulent fluid equations.

## Injector Conclusion

At the end of the solution process, two- and three-dimensional contours inside the injector are obtained related to the temperature, velocity, air and water volume fraction, streamlines, etc..

As seen in the water volume fraction contour, the water is injected through the curved channels and then flows through the cylindrical space. The curved channels cause a swirl in water flow, making sure the rotating flow pattern happens inside the cylindrical space.

1. Dr. Brendon Zulauf DVM

How are the results of the simulation visualized?

• MR CFD Support

The results are visualized using contour plots of pressure and velocity, as well as pathlines of the flow.

2. Prof. Bulah Gusikowski V

How does the simulation model the multi-phase flow in the injector?

• MR CFD Support

The simulation uses the Volume of Fluid (VOF) method to capture the interface between the liquid and gas phases in the injector.
