How to measure Reynolds number for two phase flow in DPM(Discrete Phase Model)
Hello Ansys Community,
I am solving a two-phase flow problem using DPM(Discrete Phase Model) in ANSYS Fluent. The two-phases are lubricating oil and air. The problem is that I need to input whether it is laminar or turbulent. In order to do that, I need to find the Reynolds number.
For this two-phase flow how to measure the Reynolds number and as of DPM is concerned for what range we can consider the flow is turbulent or laminar (because Reynolds number considered for the DPM model is different from the regular one)? Here I'm solving the problem for a simple pipe of 5mm diameter and 20mm length with a velocity of 6m/s. The density of oil is 954 kg/m3.
Thanks in advance.
