Hi guys, I’m not sure if this is the correct place for this posting. If not, please point me to where I should post instead.
There is a lot of interest in atmospheric water generation these days, and I have a specific in seeing the multi-phase CFD analysis for something simple like this: https://grabcad.com/library/sun-pumped-ground-cooled-condenser In particular, I would like to know whether such a system can even function in a purely passive fashion (as indicated in the design) or whether some major tweaks would need to be made for it to even function. In particular, I’m most concerned that the boundary layer friction in the coils would pretty much prevent it from working at all, hence I’d like to simulate it first
I’m happy to see that there is a fantastic cloud-based system like SimScale out in the market now, as it makes things much more accessible to non-experts! I have not done any form of CAD or CFD in many years, so I’m really looking for a mentor or expert who can help get me started by setting up a first-pass model and letting me tinker with it from there.
I don’t have a huge budget as this is a personal project at the moment, but I would be happy to pay someone for assistance. Is there perhaps someone in the community who might be willing to take this project on?
Thanks for your interest!
