1 Deoiling Hydrocyclones Flow Field-A Comparison between k-Epsilon and LES

Authors: Reza Maddahian, Bijan Farhanieh, Maysam Saidi

Abstract:

In this research a comparison between k-epsilon and LES model for a deoiling hydrocyclone is conducted. Flow field of hydrocyclone is obtained by three-dimensional simulations with OpenFOAM code. Potential of prediction for both methods of this complex swirl flow is discussed. Large eddy simulation method results have more similarity to experiment and its results are presented in figures from different hydrocyclone cross sections.

Keywords: k-epsilon model, openFOAM, Deoiling hydrocyclones, Largeeddy simulation
