Multi-Phase Flows CFD Analysis

FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization

Multi-Phases flows involve combinations of solids, liquids and gases which interact. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to accurately predict the simultaneous interaction of more than one combination of phases that can be gases, solids or fluids. Typical applications involve sprays, solid particulate transport, boiling, cavitation, state-changes, free surface flows, dispersed multiphase flows, buoyancy problems and mixed species flows. For example, the risks from flow or process-induced vibration excitation of pipework are widely acknowledged in onshore process plants, offshore topsides and subsea facilities.
Multiphase flow is particularly of concern because forces can vary considerably with flow regimes, and so relatively small changes in the gas to oil ratio can result in significant changes in dynamic force levels. These forces can be relatively broadband in nature and can therefore excite a range of structural modes.

Multiphase Flows types and application

Our Engineers account the interactions between liquids, solids and gases. Each of these varied multiphase challenges requires a different modeling approach with Euler-Euler such as VOF or Euler-Lagrange method such as using Discrete Element Method to capture immersed particles interaction.
