Numerical Simulation of the Flow Field in Cavitations Nozzle for Impinging Streams Reactor
The pressure distributions in cavitations nozzle of three different structures were studied by Hydromechanics theory, the models and mashes were completed by using Gambit software, for the conditions of the inlet pressure to 20MPa and the outlet pressure to 0.1MPa, the flow field within cavitations nozzles is simulated based on the standard k-ε model and the SIMPLE algorithm with Fluent. The result of numerical simulation is consistent with that of analytical calculation. Simulation results show that the flow has a strong shear effect with the surrounding medium in the diffuser, resulting in significant negative pressure, which is conducive to the formation of cavitations bubbles. The angle nozzle is best selected for impinging streams cavitations reactor on this basis in the paper.
