Numerical study of stochastic particle dispersion using One-Dimensional-Turbulence
Paper i proceeding, 2017
A stochastic model to study particle dispersion in a round jet configuration using the one-dimensional-turbulence model (ODT) is evaluated. To address one of the major problems for multiphase flow simulations, namely computational costs, the dimension-reduced model is used with the goal of predicting these flows more efficiently. ODT is a stochastic model simulating turbulent flow evolution along a notional one-dimensional line of sight by applying instantaneous maps which represent the effect of individual turbulent eddies on property fields. As the impact of the particles on the carrier fluid phase is negligible for cases considered, a one-way coupling approach is used, which means that the carrier-phase is affecting the particle dynamics but not vice versa. The radial dispersion and axial velocity are compared with jet experimental data as a function of axial position. For consistent representation of the spatially developing round jet, the spatial formulation of ODT in cylindrical coordinates is used. The investigated jet configuration has a nozzle diameter of 7 mm and Reynolds numbers ranging from 10000 to 30000. The flow statistics of the ODT particle model are compared with experimental measurements for two different particle diameters (60 and 90 μm), thereby testing the Stokes number dependence predicted by ODT.
