In this project, we simulated reverse osmosis by Ansys Fluent software, The reverse osmosis mechanism is simulated. This mechanism is used to purify water so that a membrane is placed in front of the water movement and does not allow the salts in the water to leave and pure water leaves. Eulerian Multiphase model has been used in this project. Inlet water velocity is 0.01 m/s, the volume fraction of solutes is 0.02, And the membrane layer is simulated as a porous medium.
Geometry & Mesh
The two-dimensional geometry of this project has been produced with Spaceclaim software The length of the calculation domain is 100 mm and its height is 50mm.
The meshing of this project has been done with Ansys Meshing software and the type of elements is structured. Also, the total number of elements is 44800.
Reverse Osmosis CFD Simulation
We consider several assumptions in this simulation:
- the pressure-based solver method has been selected.
- The simulation is transient.
- We consider the gravity effect in the y-direction
The following tables represent a summary of the defining steps of the problem in this project and its solution:
|Velocity magnitude||0.01 m/s|
|Gauge pressure||0 pa|
|Turbulent kinetic energy||first-order upwind|
|Turbulent dissipation rate||first-order upwind|
During the simulation, we see that the salts in the water can not leave the membrane layer and are trapped behind it, and the filtered water comes out.
You can obtain Geometry & Mesh file and a comprehensive Training Movie that presents how to solve the problem and extract all desired results.
