Purpose

If the wall temperature is much higher than the saturation temperature of the liquid in

contact with the wall, then the entire wall surface is immersed in vapor. Due to the boil-

ing mass exchange occurring at the vapor-liquid interface, bubbles of gas are periodically

produced and emitted upwards. Such a regime is known as film boiling. The purpose of

this tutorial is to provide guidelines and recommendations for setting up and solving the

applications, including advice on mesh resolution and solver settings.

Note: In this tutorial, we have to compile the UDFs, as they cannot be run through the

FLUENT interpreter for this version of FLUENT.

Prerequisites

This tutorial assumes that you are familiar with the FLUENT interface, and have a good

understanding of basic setup and solution procedures. This tutorial will not cover the

mechanics of using the models; instead, it will focus on the application of the models. If

you have not used these models before, the FLUENT Tutorial Guide will provide you with

the necessary experience.

Problem Description

The problem to be solved in this tutorial is shown in Figure 1.

The wall has a temperature 10K above saturation. Initially, the linear temperature profile

(from Twall to Tsat in the positive Y direction) is patched on the liquid domain. Note that

the double precision version of FLUENT is used to solve this problem.

Tutorial: Horizontal Film Boiling

Step 1: Grid

2. Check and display the grid (Figure 2).

3. Scale the grid.

Step 2: Models

(a) Turn on the Volume of Fluid multiphase model and accept the default settings.

(b) Enable heat transfer by activating the energy equation.

Step 3: Materials

1. Create two new materials, vapor and liquid, with properties (in SI units) given in the

following table:

Tutorial: Horizontal Film Boiling

Grid

FLUENT 6.0 (2d, dp, segregated, lam)

Density (kg/m3 ) 200 5

Specific heat (j/kg k) 400 200

Conductivity (w/m k) 40 1

Viscosity (kg/m s) 0.1 0.005

(a) Specify vapor as the primary phase and enter gas as the Name.

(b) Specify liquid as the secondary phase and enter fluid as the Name.

(c) Specify the interphase interaction.

i. In the Phase Interaction panel, turn on Surface Tension and enter 0.1 n/m

for the Surface Tension Coefficient.

1. Turn on Gravity.

3. Turn on Specified Operating Density and set the Operating Density to 5 kg/m3 .

In this problem, the user-defined function (UDF) is used to specify mass transfer between

phases. If you want to use a mass transfer model that is not available in FLUENT, you can

specify it yourself using a UDF. The mass transfer terms for each phase (vapor and liquid)

are equal and have opposite signs. They are specified as source terms in volume fraction

equations and have units of kg/m3 /sec. In addition, there is an energy source temperature,

to take into account the latent heat absorbed/released, which has units in Watts/m3 and is

prescribed for mixture energy equation. For more information on compiled UDFs, refer to

the section on Compiled UDFs in Chapter 7: Compiling and Linking of the FLUENT UDF

Manual.

2. Enter the name of your library directory (e.g., libudf) if it is located in your working

directory, or the complete path (e.g., myhome/myfiles/libudf).

3. Click Open to link your shared library to the FLUENT executable.

4. Set the number of User Defined Memory Locations to 3.

Note: This step is necessary as the UDF uses three UDMLs.

5. In the User-Defined Function Hooks panel, select area density in the drop-down list for

Adjust Function.

(a) In the Boundary Conditions panel, retain the Phase as mixture and click the Set...

button.

(b) Turn on Source Terms and s udf energy in the Energy drop-down list.

(c) In the Boundary Conditions panel, change the Phase to fluid and click the Set...

button.

(d) Turn on Source Terms and select udf liquid in the drop-down list for Mass.

(e) In the Boundary Conditions panel, change the Phase to gas and click the Set...

button.

(f) Turn on Source Terms and select udf gas in the drop-down list for Mass.

2. Set the conditions for the wall boundary, heat.

(a) In the Boundary Conditions panel, change the Phase to mixture and click the Set...

button.

(b) Under Thermal Conditions, select Temperature and enter 510 k for Temperature.

This indicates 10 k superheat with respect to the saturation temperature 500 k.

3. Set the boundary condition for the pressure-outlet, outlet.

(a) Enter 500 k for Backflow Total Temperature.

(b) This will prevent gas entrance at the outlet when reversed flow occurs and also

sets the saturation temperature for the liquid if reversed flow occurs.

(c) In the Boundary Conditions panel, change the Phase to fluid and click the Set...

button.

(d) Enter 1 for Backflow Volume Fraction.

Tutorial: Horizontal Film Boiling

Step 7: Solution

(a) For the Under-Relaxation Factors, set the values of Pressure and Momentum to

0.7, and the rest to 1.

(b) Under Discretization, select PRESTO! for Pressure, PISO for Pressure-Velocity Cou-

pling, and Second Order Upwind for Momentum and Energy.

(c) Turn off Skewness Correction.

(a) Initiate with pressure and velocity components at zero.

(b) Set the fluid Volume Fraction to 1.

(c) Initialize the flow field Temperature to 500 k.

(a) Create the custom field function, 510 y 10/0.1168.

This function is needed to initialize temperature profile, ranging from 510 K at

y=0 ( for heat wall) to 500K at y = 0.1168 m (for outlet).

Hint: Select y by selecting Grid... and Y-Coordinate in the Field Functions drop-

down lists.

(a) Enable the plotting of residuals.

Monitor panel.

This problem requires a UDF for implementing mass exchange source terms in mass equa-

tions for each phase (liquid and vapor). Source term in energy equation accounting for

latent heat transfer is also required.

The general form of the mass source in the vapor phase is:

00 00

(qg ql ). 5 1

Ss = (1)

L

00

Here, q is the heat flux across the interface per area of the interface, the subscripts l and

g refer to liquid and vapor, respectively, and L is the latent heat.

As a first order approximation, the heat flux difference is represented as:

00 00

(qg ql ) (l kl + g kg ) 5 T (2)

(kl l + kg g )(5T. 5 l )

Sg = (3)

L

Since there is no internal mass sources, mass source for liquid phase becomes:

Sl = Sg (4)

SE = Sg .L (5)

Tutorial: Horizontal Film Boiling

Interfacial properties include surface tension 0.1N/m, latent heat 1e5 J/kg, saturation tem-

perature Tsat = 500K. The length scale of the problem is the most dangerous wavelength

of Taylor-Raleigh instability:

!1/2

0 = 2 = 0.0778m (6)

(l g )gy

q

gy 0 = 0.87m/s (7)

q

0 /gy = 0.09m/s (8)

The domain horizontal width is 0 /2 and the vertical height is 30 /2. The mesh resolution

is 64(hor)X192(ver). The initial shape of the vapor-liquid interface must be perturbed to

initiate bubble growth. Therefore, there is another initialization UDF which fills with gas

all cells satisfying the following condition:

Nusselt number is an important dimensionless group characterizing boiling heat transfer

and is defined as:

00

| q | 0

Nu = (10)

kl (Twall Tsat )

Since the time scale of this problem is 0.01 sec, the time step is 2e-4, i.e., 50 time steps

resolution. In total, the problem should run for about 6000 time steps to capture first

bubble emission.

The postprocessing had void fraction and temperature profiles at 4500 and 5500 time steps,

corresponding to 0.9 and 1.1 seconds. These times correspond to minimum and maximum

thickness of the boiling film at the heated wall. They correspond to minimum and maximum

values of Nusselt number, respectively.

Summary

Application of the VOF model in film boiling regime has been demonstrated in this tutorial.

Also, UDFs have been used to enhance the standard features of FLUENT.

Tutorial: Horizontal Film Boiling

adjust or modify FLUENT variables. In this case it calculates dot product and stores

the dot product in Equation 3.

For more information, refer to Section 4.2.1 DEFINE ADJUST of the UDF Manual.

DEFINE SOURCE (gas) uses UDMI(0) and user input for L to compute mass source

term (Equation 3) for the gas phase and stores it in UDMI(1). This macro also

computes energy source (Equation 5) and stores it in UDMI(2).

For more information, refer to Section 4.3.8 DEFINE SOURCE of the UDF Manual.

DEFINE SOURCE (liquid) assigns UDMI(1) with negative sign as a liquid mass

source in accordance with Equation 4.

DEFINE INIT (my init function) initializes gas void fraction in accordance with Equa-

tion 7.

For more information, refer to Section 4.2.2 DEFINE INIT of the FLUENT UDF

Manual.
