A combined experimental and computational fluid dynamics analysis of the dynamics of drop formation

By O. Fawehinmi, P. Gaskell, P.K. Jimack, N. Kapur and H. Thompson


This article presents a complementary experimental and computational investigation of the effect of viscosity and flowrate on the dynamics of drop formation in the dripping mode. In contrast to previous studies, numerical simulations are performed with two popular commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) packages, CFX and FLOW-3D, both of which employ the volume of fluid (VOF) method. Comparison with previously published experimental and computational data and new experimental results reported here highlight the capabilities and limitations of the aforementioned packages
