It is your task to model and analyzes multiphase flows in real-world engineering applications?
Then you know that you are faced with selecting appropriate models for your CFD simulation problem. Eulerian, Lagrangian, Volume of Fluid, Fluid Film, condensation, evaporation, cavitation, droplet impingement, droplet stripping. Simulating multiphase flows is complex, modeling is difficult, reaching numerical convergence is tricky. However, to build a custom solution, multiphase flow CFD simulations are an essential approach โ€“ fundamental background knowledge and validation effort are required!
Take a look at the photo-collage of our steam turbine design group, demonstrating the wide range of multiphase flow models in STAR-CCM+ applied in the design and improvement of modern low-pressure steam turbines! Also, check out our recently published paper about droplet-film interaction:
