Paper Abstract

This paper presents the simulated result of three-dimensional liquid velocity profile on sieve trays by using a computational flow dynamics (CFD) model with considerations of volume fraction of gas and liquid and the interfacial forces. The Κ-ε equation is used for the closure of basic equations. For the first time the three-dimensional liquid flow on a distillation column with ten trays under total reflux is visualized. The simulation was carried out with an Origin 200 Server Workstation of SGI Company using Star-CD V3.1 program. Simulation provides the detailed information of the distribution of 3D liquid velocity on the distillation column.
