Removing Contaminants in a Secondary Sedimentation Clarifier

Wastewater treatment is a several-step process for removing contaminants. Firstly, large, solid particles are removed through sedimentation, flotation, and filtration. And then in a second step, biological treatment causes the smaller particles to aggregate, forming so called flocs. These flocs can be more easily removed by processes such as sedimentation. In a circular secondary clarifier, ...

Non-Newtonian Flow

This model shows the influence of shear rate dependent viscosity on the flow of a linear polystyrene solution. For this type of flow, you can use the Carreau viscosity model. Due to rotational symmetry, it is possible to reduce the model dimensions from 3D to axisymmetric 2D.

Using the Curvilinear Coordinate Interface for Heat Transfer Modeling

This model and presentation shows how to model anisotropic properties of fibers in a heat transfer simulation. Because the fibers orientation is not easy to define explicitly, the curvilinear coordinate interface is used to define the fiber orientation. The fibers have high thermal conductivity in the fiber direction and low conductivity in the perpendicular direction.

Thermophoresis

When a temperature gradient in a gas exists, suspended particles will tend to move from regions of high temperature to low. The force which produces this effect is called the thermophoretic force. Gas molecules colliding with a particle from the hot side have a higher velocity than the cold side, which results in a net force towards cold areas. This effect can be exploited to create thermal ...

Bending Pipe

This model studies the fluid flow through a bending pipe in 3D for the Reynolds number 300 000. Because of the high Reynolds number, the k-epsilon and the k-omega turbulence models are used. Calculations with and without corner smoothing are performed. The results are compared with experimental data.

Turbulent Two-Phase Flow Benchmark

This model shows how to solve a turbulent two-phase flow problem with the k-epsilon Turbulence Model closure model. Industrial scale mold-filling problems often involve free-surface flows with a high Reynolds number, and a suitable turbulence model must be employed. Liquid water is injected into a filling plate at a velocity of 16 m/s. The liquid density is 1000 kg/m3 and the viscosity is ...

Tilted Pad Thrust Bearing

Tilted pad thrust bearings are used in rotating machineries with high thrust loading. The thrust load is transferred from a sliding part to a stationary part through hydrodynamic oil films. The tilted pad thrust bearing consists of a series of flat surfaces sliding over stationary tilted pads. The space between the flat surface and the tilted pad is filled by a lubricant that is drawn in due to ...

Turbulent Residence Time in a Baffled Reactor

Large-scale reactors are usually made from stationary parts, often involving baffles. They make use of the baffled- imposed turbulence to provide mixing within the reactor. Yet, such reactors need to be optimized as too much baffling can create unnecessary turbulence and pressure drops. Too few can lead to short-circuiting and dead zones. An indication of residence time is a pointer toward ...

Journal Bearing

Journal bearings are used to carry radial loads, for example, to support a rotating shaft. A simple journal bearing consists of two rigid cylinders. The outer cylinder (bearing) wraps the inner rotating journal (shaft). The new thin-film flow user interfaces of the CFD Module enables lubrication analysis and full elastohydrodynamic simulations. This example shows the pressure distribution in ...

Transient elastohydrodynamic squeeze film interaction

This benchmark model computes the transient pressure distribution and film height in a squeeze film bearing for lubrication in a nonconformal conjunction of a solid sphere and an elastic wall separated by a lubricant film. This model solves the benchmark case of hydrodynamic interaction between a solid sphere and a wall separated by a lubricant film, and extends the benchmark case to include ...
