I was using VOF to simulate a water drop falling in the air, the phase contour was working fine, however the velocity field of the water and air were not the same which should not be the case in reality. And I just found out that the assumption of VOF is solving a single momentum equation and only solve for single velocity field for the mixture. Is there a way to solve for the velocity field of water and air separately? under the inhomogenous model, Eulerian is for mixing process, I don't think it applies for water and air.November 10, 2020 at 4:36 pmRaef.KobeissiSubscriberThe VOF model can model two or more immiscible fluids by solving a single set of momentum equations and tracking the volume fraction of each of the fluids throughout the domain.nThe Eulerian model on the other hand solves the momentum and continuity equation for each phase.nNovember 11, 2020 at 11:35 amRobAnsys EmployeeWhy would the water and air velocity be the same? is correct, but in your case large water droplets are modelled using VOF. nNovember 11, 2020 at 3:18 pmLugia_06SubscribernVOF is solving single set of moment equation and only has one velocity field according to the Fluent theory guide 16.3 VOF theory (https://www.afs.enea.it/project/neptunius/docs/fluent/html/th/node301.htm). Is there a way to enable separate velocity for different phases?nLugia_06nNovember 11, 2020 at 3:44 pmRobAnsys EmployeeOnly by using the Eulerian model: multifluid VOF. Note, if you click on Help in the 2019 & 2020 releases you'll get an up to date version of the documentation. v16 is around 5 releases old now. nNovember 11, 2020 at 3:47 pmLugia_06SubscriberI see...
