Disclaimer! This Flow is Actually Turbulent Checking the Reynolds number – This should be turbulent flow The Problem Size gets much bigger Turbulence requires a much denser mesh Turbulence introduces more variables to calculate For this example we will ignore this (It’s a classroom example!) Want a quick solution Want small memory requirements Will show at conclusion of problem how to solve with turbulence

Capture the Concept TM Addendum Step-by-Step Instructions

31
Start by Solving for Airflow Choose File > New Select “3D” Select “Fluid Flow” > “Single Phase Flow” > “Laminar Flow” Choose “Stationary”

32
Disclaimer! This Flow is Actually Turbulent Checking the Reynolds number – This should be turbulent flow The Problem Size gets much bigger Turbulence requires a much denser mesh Turbulence introduces more variables to calculate For this example we will ignore this (It’s a classroom example!) Want a quick solution Want small memory requirements Will show at conclusion of problem how to solve with turbulence

33
Set up Geometry – Import Sequence Choose Geometry Change “Units” to “Feet” Right click on Geometry Choose “Import Sequence from File” Navigate to proper file location (probably on CD) Choose “ContaminationPlume_GEOM_SEQUENCE” Build All, Zoom Extents Or you can build it from scratch (instructions at end of presentation)

34
Material: Air Rt Click on “Materials” Choose “Material Browser” Expand “Built-in” Choose “Air” Be sure “All Domains” are selected

35
Airflow: Inlet Boundary Conditions Rt Click on “Laminar Flow” Choose “Inlet” Choose the end of the hallway near the door Set to “Velocity” Normal inflow velocity U 0 set to “0.15”

36
Airflow: Outlet Boundary Conditions Rt Click on “Laminar Flow” Choose “Outlet” Choose the other end of the hallway Choose both windows Set to “Pressure, no viscous stress” P 0 set to “0”

37
Mesh: Physics-based Mesh Highlight “Mesh” Leave as “Physics-controlled mesh” Set size as “Extra Coarse” Build Note: This is way too coarse for accurate flow

38
Give the Nonlinear Solver more Iterations Rt Click on “Study 1” Select “Show default solver” Expand everything under Study 1 Highlight “Fully Coupled” Change iterations from 25 to 50 Note: This controls max number of Newton iterations before giving up.

39
Solve for Flow Rt Click on Study 1 Hit “Compute” Under Results: Rt Click on “Velocity” Choose “Slice” Choose “Quick” Choose “xy-plane” Planes: “1” Plot

40
Add Particle Tracing Rt click on “Model 1” Choose “Add Physics” Choose “Fluid Flow” > “Particle Tracing for Fluid Flow” Choose the blue “Next” arrow Choose “Time Dependant” Note: You need an additional study since particle tracing is transient whereas the fluid flow was stationary.

41

42
Add Fluid Forces Rt Click on “Particle Tracing for Fluid Flow” Choose “Drag Force” Select “All Domains” Set “u” to “Velocity Field” Note: for Turbulent flows (typical for room dispersion) you must select “Turbulent dispersion” in the “Drag Force” section. Do not select this in this tutorial

43
BC: Particle Inlet Rt Click on “Particle Tracing for Fluid Flow” Choose “Inlet” Select hall boundary near door Change “Initial position” to “Density” Set “N” to “1000” Set density to “1” Set Initial Velocity to “Velocity field”

44
BC: Particle Outlets Rt Click on “Particle Tracing for Fluid Flow” Choose “Outlet” Choose the other end of the hallway Choose both windows Leave as “Freeze” Note: The other likely setting is “disappear” – but then we cannot do statistics on the particles later
