Abstract:

A two equation turbulence model has been developed for predicting a dispersed two phase flow with variable density fluid and constant density particles. The two equations describe the conservation of turbulence kinetic energy and its dissipation rate for the fluid. They have been derived rigorously from the momentum equations of the carrier fluid in the two phase flow. Closure of the time mean equations is achieved by modeling the turbulent correlations up to third order. The new model eliminates the need to simulate in an ad hoc manner the effects of the dispersed phase on turbulent structure in situations where the compressibility of the fluid must be taken into account.
