A comparison of CFD software packages' ability to model a submerged jet

Abstract

Particle erosion from slurry flow is a common problem in many industrial applications, including the mining and the oil and gas industry. Erosion modelling is a known complex problem, and consists of three equally important parts; fluid flow modelling, particulate flow modelling, and erosion modelling. It is the first of these, the fluid flow, which is analysed here. The paper compares three different computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software packages,
ANSYS Fluent, Star-CCM+ and OpenFOAM, on their ability to model the fluid phase in the submerged jet impingement test. The computational results were verified by results from an experimental rig where the fluid flow was measured by particle image velocimetry (PIV). Despite the apparent simplicity of the jet impingement test, this paper highlights the difficulties of capturing the
experimental results with computational methods.
