October 14, 2020 at 4:52 ammatusSubscriberHellonI would like do a flow boiling simulation of sodium fluid in a annular vertical flow region. A variable heat flux is applied at the boundary wall.nI want to perform a unsteady simulation using E_E multiphase model.nThe liquid sodium entering the flow domain at fully saturated state.nI have already done the same simulation using the water by using the non-equilibrium model. nWhat are the changes do I need to make in the present case?nCan I use the same correlations of bubble dynamics used for the water in this case? nThanks n

Try to have a mesh with yplus>30.nAll subgrid models should be checked about their validated. You might have to tune them but that step is required at later stage!n
October 15, 2020 at 5:42 ammatusSubscriberDear AminenThanks for your valuable comment. I really appreciate your help.nUnfortunately, this simulation cannot be run as steady state because the heat flux quantity varies with time.nCan you just give me an idea how I can check the validity of the sub grid model in the present sodium case?ncheersnn
