Baseline-Modell für polydisperse Blasenströmungen – iMUSIG

Closure of the two-fluid model for bubbly flow is a very challenging problem due to complex relations between interfacial transfer, turbulence and bubble size. One active research topic in the department of Computational Fluid Dynamics is the validation and development of the baseline model for poly-disperse bubbly flows.

HZDR baseline model strategy

To consolidate multiphase CFD in frame of the Euler-Euler approach well defined baseline models are established and improved step by step. The same model can be used for different applications.

Inhomogeneous MUSIG (iMUSIG) approach

The closure models may depend sensitively on bubble, drop or particle size. This may lead e.g. to a se­paration of small and large bubbles. The iMUSIG approach allows the sub-division of the disperse phase in sub-phases and the combination with a population balance.

Bubble-induced turbulence (BIT)

A new model to consi­der the bubble induced turbulence (BIT) was recently derived basing on data from direct numerical simulations (DNS). Basing on the shear stress turbulence (SST) model additional source terms are proposed for BIT.

Bubble coalescence and breakup

The models for bubble coalescence and breakup consi­der the different mechanisms which may lead to a merging of bubbles or their fragmentation.

Euler-Euler-modeling of reactive flow in bubble columns

In the frame of a project within the DFG priority program 1740 “Influence of Local Transport Processes on Chemical Reactions in Bubble Flows” closure models for chemical reaction as well as the associated mass transport are included in the Euler-Euler description of bubbly flows.

Evaporating and condensing flows

For many applications evaporation and condensation processes are important. Models are developed for wall boiling including the consideration of critical heat flux (CHF), for boiling flows caused by pressure decrease and for condensing flows.

Dedicated experiments for the development and validation of closure models

Experiments are done which specifically aim on the development and validation of closure models for poly-disperse bubbly flows. To extract the required data extensive code libraries for the data evaluation were established.
