VOF model for slurry deposition trough an extruder
I, as a completely new guy to Ansys, started building up a model in fluent to simulate the slurry (fluid) deposition through an extruder. First I started to get to know the software via the tutorials in VOF modelling and some overall tutorials. Then I started with a 2D-model to try it out in a simplified model. After this gave me some decent results, I started rebuilding this model in 3d with the same parameters. But when I run this, the calculated VOF surface doesn't look realistic at all with a slurry being so vicious. Especially compared to the 2D-model. And next to that it gives the floating-point error after around 40 iterations. In the attachments of this topic, I uploaded one file containing the two summary files of the model. First, the 2D model summary is given, behind that the 3D model summary
Would be pleased to have someone that could look at it and give me some tips on what to do next to get some valid results.
