CFD / PARTICLE OR DROPLET TRACKING

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used to accurately predict the multiphase behaviour of dispersed solids or fluids discretely transported within continuous phases such as: nozzle liquid sprays or airborne solid particles. TriVista has performed particle and droplet transport analyses for clients across a range of industrial applications and these projects have typically had aims such as:

  • Optimisation of nozzle spray design parameters for improved uniformity of droplet distribution.
  • Dirt deposition analysis
  • Droplet transport analysis for improved understanding of flow phenomena.
  • Investigation of device or system contaminant removal performance.
  • Erosion analysis based on particle to surface impacts.
  • Assessment of primary and secondary break up in droplet sprays.
  • Evaluation of particle concentrations and ‘flow through’ times.
  • Particle transport analysis – evaluated under both hydrodynamic and electromagnetic forces.
  • Verify effectiveness of hot gas flow cooling from fluid jets spraying droplets with phase change.

TriVista Engineering is a leading provider of cost-effective CFD analysis to industry with our team routinely delivering realistic flow solutions of commercial benefit to clients. TriVista have supported clients in CFD particulate and droplet tracking problems across a wide range of industrial fields for instance: spraying equipment, dirt separators, process plant, power generation, oil and gas, marine, defence, water treatment, domestic appliances and automotive fields.

TriVista uses the ANSYS CFD leading multiphase modelling software with functionality enhanced by many additional features covering: spray break-up, particle-wall interactions, wall erosion analysis under particle impact, drag and particle to particle collisions. Our CFD software tools are well integrated with our FE analysis and design tools enabling us to provide a more comprehensive service or a multi-physics analysis capability if required.
