In this project, a shower drain inside a inclined channel with 120 water input is simulated and analyzed by ANSYS Fluent software. In order to analyze the air and water flow inside the channel, standard k-epsilon model with the use of standard wall functions is exploited. The multi-phase VOF model have been used to investigate the two-phase flow of air and water within this channel.
Shower Channel Drain Geometry & Mesh
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.
Shower Channel Drain CFD Simulation Settings
The key assumptions considered in this project are:
- Simulation is done using pressure-based solver.
- The present simulation and its results are considered to be steady and do not change as a function time.
- The effect of gravity has been taken into account and is equal to -9.81 m/s2 in Y direction.
The applied settings are recapitulated in the following table.
|near wall treatment||standard wall function|
|Water inlet(from inlet 1 to 109)||velocity||1.98 to 2.36 m/s|
|wall motion||stationary wall|
|momentum||first order upwind|
|turbulent kinetic energy||first order upwind|
|turbulent dissipation rate||first order upwind|
|gauge pressure||1.164153e-10 Pa|
|velocity (x,y,z)||0 m/s-1|
|Turbulent kinetic energy||0.01744463 m2/s2|
|Turbulent dissipation rate||2.755207 m2/s3|
|Water volume fraction||0|
We obtain the contours of pressure, velocity and phases volume fraction.
All files, including Geometry, Mesh, Case & Data, are available in Simulation File. By the way, Training File presents how to solve the problem and extract all desired results.
