Master Thesis


Two phase flow problem is investigated by CFD software OpenFOAM. Based on Volume of Fluid(VOF) and Lagrangian Particle Tracking(LPT) methods, in-house VOF-LPT solver has already been developed to simulate aerosol transport behaviour under pool scrubbing conditions. VOF-LPT solver need to be further validated and the task mainly contains three points

  • Comparison of various empirical models inside solver

  • Validation of CFD simulation result based on experimental data

  • Investigation of particle motion behaviour
