Two-Phase Modeling Using PHOENICS
Posted Mon November 14, 2005 @10:50AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Help Desk Arnie writes "Hi,

I am working on a project for simulating two-phase steam-water flows using PHOENICS. Is there anybody familiar with PHOENICS? I am unable to fully understand the meaning of variables: 'CFIPS' and 'CINT'.

Also I would appreciate if you could suggest me some text reference for two-phase CFD. If anybody has done any such boiling/condensation simulations, help me out and if you could, please give me a comparison of the capability of present day CFD codes to simulate two-phase boiling/condensation flows.

Thanks a lot for your time and consideration.

Application Seagate prides itself on the reliability of its hard drives and counts on Coolit to help it create thermal designs that ensure this high reliability.

Take for example, a low cost, 3-1/2 inch external hard drive that was developed for the retail desktop market. The unit was cooled by conduction and free convection, and air had to move freely through the unit whether it was in the vertical or horizontal position. Fans were not an option for cost and acoustical reasons.

News This website hosts descriptions of a number of variations of the classical 2D lid driven cavity CFD test case.

The site discusses physical, mathematical, and numerical apsects of the flows and contains figures and tables of the author's results. The site also includes downloadable data files and FORTRAN routines for working with the data.

The website appears to be the work of Dr. Ercan Erturk, Assistant Professor at the Gebze Institute of Technology in Turkey.
