I have done a flow simulation (solidworks premium 2019) with 3 fluids: Nitrogen, Xenon and water.
They are perfectly separated in different subdomains, no mixing possible.
After running the sim, I check SUrface Parameter for the input and the output of the relative circuits.
The Nitrogen 2kg/min input is 100% as it should be, the output is:
|Mass Flow Rate [kg/min]||-2|
|Volume Flow Rate [m^3/min]||-1,76963898|
|Mass Flow Rate of Xenon [kg/min]||-1,98258981|
|Mass Flow Rate of Water [kg/min]||-1,96867164|
|Volume Flow Rate of Xenon [m^3/min]||-1,75422632|
|Volume Flow Rate of Water [m^3/min]||-1,7418872|
|Surface Area [m^2]||0,00095156|
So I see 2 kg/min of totally mass flow, 1,98kg/min is Xenon and 1,96 kg/min is water.(?)
I repeated many times the sim, with different mesh density and the result change only slightly.
Is Flow Simulation not optimized for simulation with 3 different fluids?
P.s.: I tried before with Nitrogen as default and 2 fluid subdomain for Xe and H2O, no change.
