    Multi-Fluid Simulation?

      Is it possible to do a flow simulation of more than one fluid at the same time? thanks

          Shankar, you can simulate a mixture of fluids or gases, but Flow does not support two phase (gas and liquid) flow.

          You can simulate particle injection of liquids and solids into gas or liquid flows, but this calculation is done based upon the initial flow results. Consequently, the thermodynamic results of the particle flow analysis will not be reflected in the resultant flow analysis.

          However, the temperature change of the particles will reflect the change due to the primary fluid flow. It is important to realize that the particle simulation is subsequent to the flow simulation and the program does not truly reflect any interactions of the flow and the particles. It is assumed that there is none.
