Air-water two phase flow simulation using smoothed particle hydrodynamics

Sun, Fanfan, Tan, Mingyi and Xing, Jing Tang (2012) Air-water two phase flow simulation using smoothed particle hydrodynamics At 2nd International Conference on Violent Flows, France. 25 - 27 Sep 2012. , pp. 58-63.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


a new method is proposed for air-water two phase flow
simulation using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method: the
two different fluid phases are treated separately within the same time step. Air is solved using weakly compressible SPH and water is solved using incompressible SPH. No special treatment is required for the interface. It is the first time these two algorithms are combined together. The dam-break case with air-water two phase fluids is used to demonstrate the performance of the proposed algorithm. Results obtained from single phase flow and air-water two phase flow simulations are compared. It is shown that the consideration of air does not change the water movement
