Bringing the drawaings of Inventor to CFD and simulate

Hi All ,

 

im newbies here . just to ask profesional user advice about mixing 2 type of liquid in a mixing tank in room temperature simulation . attach below is my objective of that simulation and i did not yet perform the simulation like this before . Can you provide me the detail about how to do simulation of that tank using propeller 

 

Diameter Tank  :   

 

Long tank  : 4m (L) x 2.5m (W) x 4.5m (H)

 

Objective  :  To simulate whether solvent + powder are well mixed in good circulation, without stagnant zone at room temperature

 

Best Regard ,

Mohd Hafiz

Hello,
Can you attach screenshots of what you need or
how it looks? In CFD you can mix 2 liquids with Scalar variable.

Given the mention of propeller, I would sugget looking at Rotating Regions, or motion (depending on the design)

This will inherently be a transient simulation, so you will ahve to run it for enough timesteps to get to where you would typically measure the mixing quality.

 

From there you can look at Water Age as this will tell you regions of stagnant zones within the domain.

If you need to go further you could add complexity and try to introduce scalar which would allow for tracking of 2 species.
