Reliable and accurate modeling of many industrial processes requires accounting for interactions between two or more phases. The simultaneous flow of phases in a domain is called multiphase flow; some examples include conversion of crude to high-value petroleum products in a refinery, combustion of coal to generate energy in a power plant and combustion of gasoline droplets in an internal combustion engine. The successful design of equipment and processes that involve multiphase flows crucially depends on accurately predicting the mechanical, thermal and chemical interactions between the phases. This knowledge can aid in scaling up and retrofitting existing equipment as well as improving processes.
In this webinar, we discuss how Ansys Fluent provides the widest range of multiphase models to accurately simulate your toughest challenges. Learn about recent innovations, enhancements and their applications including:
