Axisymmetric Domain and Bubble Growth

      Greetings


      Respected experts I hope you are fine. I am working on simulation of single bubble growth in a super heated domain. I would like to utilize axi symmetric condition. First of all I made the axis of symmetry on y-axis. But the  simulation were not even unable to start giving divergence errors. Then on this forum I learnt from one post that the axis of symmetry must be x-axis. Otherwise It won't work. I made then the x-axis as the axis line. And simulations are working finely.My question is that the way I have adopted is it fine and is it true that the if y-axis if the axis of symmetry it won't work??


       


      The second question is about the  domain that I have made given below. The length of domain is 10mm vertically and 6mm horizontal. The  vertical direction is along the negative of x-axis and horizontal is along y-axis. These seems like a vertical pipe placed horizontally The gravity value is put -9.8m/s2 in gravity condition. Is this axisymmetric approach right for my simulation??


      I would be thankful If my questions are answered.

      In Fluent:


      Using -9.8 m/s^2 as the X component of gravity makes the +X axis up.


      Use +9.8 m/s^2 as the X component of gravity to make the -X axis up.


      (In Mechanical, the opposite sign convention applies if you use Acceleration to model gravity.)

      Oh sorry I did not take a notice of that. The other questions that I have asked are they fine.


      Thank You
