**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

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”**
