time step of twophaseeulerfoam

  • Hi guys,
    I am using twophaseeulerfoam to simulate liquid-solid pipe flow. The mesh has 180000 cells but I need to use a very very small time step. Do you have any suggestion for how to increse the time step or other ways to make computational time reduced? Thanks a lot!

    Your simulations just blow up

  • @东岳 Thanks for your reply. The simulation was not crashed but the time step is small, says 1e-5. I found most of researchers used a smaller time step even than mine in this phenomenon. Thus, it is usual to be like this? If this, I need a lot of computational time?

    Small time step may be possible. But it means too large velocity. If it is incompressible flow, it is not common.

  • @东岳 Thanks. My parameters are: Pipe diameter is 0.1 m, mean velocity is 2.5 m/s (ensure fully-suspended), particle size is 1e-4 m, density of particle is 2650 kg/m3, fluid is water. As you can see, the velocity is so small. I cannot imagine if that small time step is used, how much time I need to finish one simulation. There is no way to increase the time step. By the way, I already switch on adjustable time step option, which automatically adjusts the time step to be as large as possible.

    Your simulations just blow up, its difficult to debug the reason from your info.
