Application ID: 103531
This example simulates particles in a range of sizes that move through different levels of a cascade impactor. A cascade impactor is an inertial particle separation device consisting of multiple levels separated by collecting plates and nozzles. Particle-laden air enters from the top inlet and passes through progressively finer nozzles. A 2D histogram is used to record the range of particle sizes that hit each stage of the cascade impactor.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
