Droplet Rising Through a Suspension

Application ID: 90401

This example simulates an oil droplet rising through a suspension. The suspension is initially stratified, with a dense layer between two clear layers. The droplet is initially located in the bottom clear layer. The particles in the suspension start to sediment toward the bottom of the flow domain, while a fraction of them is also dragged along by the rising droplet. This model demonstrates the combination of a dispersed multiphase flow model with a level set model.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
