$60.00 Student Discount
- The problem numerically simulates Shower Channel Drain using ANSYS Fluent software.
- We design the 3-D model by the Design Modeler software.
- We Mesh the model by ANSYS Meshing software, and the element number equals 1310945.
- We use the VOF Multi-Phase Model to define water and air in the channel.
In this project, a shower drain inside an inclined channel with 120 water input is simulated and analyzed by ANSYS Fluent software.
The drain in a shower should ideally be the lowest height on the floor. It has lots of applications in bathrooms, carwashes, pools, etc.
The geometry of this project is designed in ANSYS Design Modeler and meshed inside ANSYS Meshing. The mesh type used for this geometry is unstructured, and the element number is 1310945.
To analyze the air and water flow inside the channel, the multi-phase VOF model has been used to investigate the two-phase flow of air and water within this channel. The effect of gravity has been considered and is equal to -9.81 m / s2 in the Y direction.
The results from 2-D and 3-D volume fraction, pressure, and velocity contours show that a correct shower floor has a slope. So, the positioning of the drain is such that water from all directions slopes down to the drain.
