In the present problem, a two-phase CFD simulation of airflow inside a Venturi and accurate modeling of air bubbles as a separate phase in water by ANSYS Fluent software is carried out. The venturi effect reduces the pressure in the fluid when the fluid passes through the narrow part of the pipe.

As the pipe diameter decreases according to the continuity equation, the velocity increases, and the pressure decreases due to energy conservation. Kinetic energy is balanced by pressure drop or pressure gradient. The present model is designed in three dimensions using SOLIDWORKS and then imported into the Design Modeler.

The meshing of the present project has been done using ICEM software. The elements are first used as hexahedral with fewer cells and better quality. The element number equals 193932, and the mesh type is structured. Moreover, due to the nature of the present problem, the transient solver has been enabled.

Venturi Methodology

In the present problem, a two-phase CFD simulation of airflow inside a Venturi using the VOF multiphase model and accurate modeling of air bubbles as a separate phase in water is carried out. The circulated mixed air stream enters the venturi with a volume fraction of 0.7.

After passing this stream through the bottleneck, the flow rate increases, and its pressure decreases. This pressure drop causes air to be sucked out of the hole located in the venturi throat. As air is added to the stream, the air volume fraction increases.

All inputs and outputs of this issue were at a pressure of 30 bar. This study evaluates the amount of air sucked by the venturi and its injection into water.

The VOF model is the best and simplest model suitable for determining the interface boundary between phases of multiphase flow. It is a Tracking Volume model based on the older MAC: cell and Marker model, a tracking-surface model.

In the VOF model, a set of momentum equations is solved jointly for all phases, and for each phase, a volume fraction equation of the continuity equation is solved. Using the Set Level model with VOF in the (VOF + Set Level Couple) section, it is possible to simulate the boundary between phases as accurately as possible.

VOF is designed and developed to track and determine the boundary between phases. We can say that this model is specifically used to simulate immiscible multiphase flow with collisions with definite boundaries between phases.

The Venturi tube has two different inlets. The mixture of air and water, containing 70% (volume fraction 0.7) water, enters through the main inlet boundary. Due to the pressure changes at the bottleneck, air can enter through the top boundary due to the pressure inlet boundary condition type.

Venturi Conclusion

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

As seen in the water volume fraction contour, the velocity of the incoming water flow causes air to be sucked into the venturi, and the sucked air is combined with water, creating a two-phase (air-water) fluid. Air bubbles can be seen in the water fluid.

Also, based on the calculated data from the Fluent software, the graph that represents the sucked air magnitude through the air inlet in terms of time is as follows,

When water passes through a bottleneck in a venturi tube, a vacuum is created at the end of the bottleneck. The hole in the pipe at the point where the vacuum occurs causes air to be sucked into the mainstream, leading to a turbulent flow.

    I was fascinated by how the simulation handled the air suction through the Venturi throat and how air volume fraction increased as it passes the constriction. Could you explain how the mixture of two phases was tracked accurately within this system?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In this simulation, the tracking of the mixture of two phases – water and air – within the Venturi tube utilizes the Volume of Fluid (VOF) model. The VOF model is particularly effective for resolving immiscible fluids with distinct interfaces. A set of momentum equations is solved concurrently for all phases, and the VOF method solves a volume fraction equation for each phase as part of the continuity equation. Additionally, utilizing the Level Set method enhances the accuracy in tracking the interface boundary between the phases.

    The simulation sounds interesting. Can you explain if it is possible to observe the cavitation effect in this Venturi tube simulation using ANSYS Fluent?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In this specific Venturi tube simulation, the focus is on the two-phase CFD simulation of airflow and venturi effect with air suction and water injection. While the simulator ANSYS Fluent is fully capable of simulating cavitation effects, there is no direct mention of cavitation modeling in the provided description as it primarily addresses air-water interaction via VOF. To capture the cavitation effect, additional setup in terms of modeling choices and boundary conditions would be required, including enabling and adjusting specific cavitation models those Fluent provides.

    What was the specific reason for choosing the VOF model in this simulation, and could other multiphase models be used for this analysis?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The VOF (Volume of Fluid) model was chosen for this simulation because it’s well-suited for tracking and determining the boundary between immiscible fluids with a clear interface, such as air and water. The VOF model is capable of accurately capturing the free surface and phase distribution, making it an ideal choice for evaluating the air suction phenomena in a Venturi flow with air-water interaction. While other multiphase models like the Eulerian or the mixture model could theoretically be used, the VOF model is typically preferred for its accuracy in cases where you have a distinct interface between the phases, as in the simulation of Venturi effect with air bubble formation.

    I’m impressed by the detailed explanation of the physics involved in the Venturi tube scenario. Could someone clarify if there are any special considerations one must take when setting the initial conditions for the air-water mixture to achieve accurate results?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Absolutely! When setting the initial conditions for a two-phase flow in a Venturi system, one must specify the initial volume fraction of each phase in the mixture. In this case, the water had to initially have a volume fraction of 0.7, as specified. Moreover, the correct velocity and pressure settings are crucial, particularly at the two different inlets, to accurately depict the vacuum and resultant air suction. The initial placement of the phases could also affect the way in which the air bubbles get entrained into the water during the simulation, so this aspect should also be carefully defined.

    I am really interested in the details of how the VOF model is utilized for air bubble tracking. Could you explain a bit more about this process?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In this simulation, the Volume of Fluid (VOF) model is used to accurately track the phase interface between air and water. The model solves a set of momentum equations for the mixture while solving a continuity volume fraction equation separately for each phase to determine the distribution and evolution of the air bubbles in water as they move through the Venturi tube. As air enters the system due to pressure reduction at the bottleneck, the VOF model captures the transition of these air bubbles within the water, predicting their behavior and interactions accurately throughout the process.

      In our CFD simulation, the pressure changes indeed correspond well to the theoretical predictions of the Venturi effect. As water accelerates through the narrower section of the tube, we observe a decrease in pressure that aligns with the principles of conservation of energy and the continuity equation.
