Two phase flow animation (using DPM)

    • Ramy


      I'm trying to create an animation in CFD Post of both air flow and droplets tracks (I'm using DPM). The thing is there are 3 options in the animation tool in CFD Post (i.e., Quick animation, Time step animation, and Keyframe animation). I've been using Quick animation and Time step animation. None of them can animate the two phases together.

      How can I create an animation showing the droplets moving with the air?

      Thank you,

      I assume you have exported File -- export -- particle history data from Fluent to CFD-Post.
      Please have a look at
      You may also find many posts on forum on CFD-Post.

      Hi Keynur Thank you for your reply. Actually, what I want to create is an animation "video" showing the moving droplets with moving the air flow together.
      Thank you Ramy

      You can export hard copies at each time step directly from fluent. You can later postprocess them with ffmpeg or matlab to create the movie.
