Industrial CFD Applications of Free Surface and Cavitating Flows

Zwart, P.-J.; Höhne, T.; Vallée, C.


The FZR performed parallel experimental and numerical investigations in order to better understand the mechanisms leading to slug formation. For the CFD simulation, the code CFX-5 was used, applying the two fluid model with the free surface option. The qualitative agreement between calculation and experiment is encouraging and shows that CFD can be a useful tool in studying slug flow.
