Flow Simulation - Analyze mutual dissolution of fluids

Question asked by Alan Lynch on Mar 6, 2013
Latest reply on Apr 6, 2013 by Rich Bayless



     Under the SW Flow Simulation Forum, there is a link that says "What You Can Do in SolidWorks Flow Simulation".   Under the "Fluid and Flow Types" section, it says: "Analyze mutual dissolution of fluids.  Mixing fluids must be of the same type."   Would someone please explain what this means?  Does this mean the dispersion and mixing of multiple gases or fluids, but not dispersion/mixing of fluids and gases?   Said differently, can Flow Simulation mix multiple gases together?


     Also, in the Solving Engineering Tasks document for Flow Simulation, in the introduction section on page 1-2 it says: "The purely computational approach, being properly performed, is substantially less expensive than the experimental one, both in terms of finances and time, but it requires assurance in adequacy of the obtained computational results. Naturally, such assurance must be based on numerous verifications and validations of the used computational codes, both on the mathematical accuracy of the obtained results (the results adequacy to the used mathematical model) and on the adequacy of the used mathematical model to the governing physical processes, which is validated by comparing the computation results to the available experimental data."     Would you please comment on whether any computational results were validated with available experimental data specifically related to analyzing the mutual dissolution of fluids?  If so, what validation/verification examples were used to analyze the mutual dissolution of fluids?


Thank you for your input.
