Hello! I am relatively new to SimScale and CFD in general, and am looking for some advice on how to best simulate the flow of coarse wet foam through a pipe.
To give a few more specifics, I am trying to simulate foam flow in a round pipe with a constriction in the middle. The geometry exhibits cylindrical symmetry. I have already been able to successfully simulate this geometry with SimScale for water, so my question is how to go about choosing parameters to simulate the non-newtonian foam flow (assuming this is within the capabilities of SimScale). I’ve attached an image below of the foam in the pipe I am trying to simulate. The size of the bubbles is roughly just under a millimetre or so.
I’d appreciate any help or suggestions you might have. Thanks!
