Numerical simulation of boiling liquid outflows process

Abstract

 
Computational algorithm was developed based on the well-known ANSYS Fluent  software package for studying unsteady wave outflow of a saturated liquid from high-pressure pipelines during emergency depressurization. The unsteady processes of the outflow of liquid, boiling as a result of depressurization of high-pressure vessels, have been investigated. The system of equations for the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy in a two-dimensional coordinate system is used in order to create mathematical model this process. The system of equations for the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy in a two-dimensional coordinate system is used to describe the initial stage of the unsteady outflow process. The features of the formation of jets of boiling liquid at various equilibrium initial states of water in a high-pressure vessel under conditions close to the experiments carried out by the authors [10] have been studied. The spatial distributions of pressure, temperature and velocity of the forming jet are obtained. Numerical results have shown that, over time, the character of the velocity distribution acquires a conical shape. With an increase in the initial temperature and pressure, this distribution is preserved, and the opening angle increases. The results are in qualitative agreement with the experimental data.
