3D Numerical Simulation of Inner Water Flow Field in a Hydrocyclone with Air Column
Based on the principle and method of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), using the software, FLUENT, the inner water flow field in a hydrocyclone with air column was simulated and the flow details were studied roundly. This article analyzed the three-dimensional velocity field distribution, pressure field distribution and testified the reliability of numerical simulation to a certain extent. The “mixture” model was used to simulate the air column the first time and contrasted with experimental result, the simulated effect was proved effective. The results of this paper provided a good base and reference for the further research of solid-liquid separation.
