Abstract

This work presents a numerical study on the turbulent flow of air with dispersed water droplets in separators of mechanical cooling towers. The averaged Navier-Stokes equations are discretised through a finite volume method, using the Fluent and Phoenics codes, and alternatively employing [...]

Abstract

An iterative (k-L)-predictor / (epsilon)- corrector algorithm that models turbulent flow was developed in previous publications. In this paper, the 3D finite element turbulent model was used to analyze the liquid steel movement produced by gravity force, inert gas stirring or electromagnetic [...]
