Multiphysics Eulerian-Lagrangian Electrostatic Particle Spray- And Deposition Model for OpenFOAM® and KaleidoSim® Cloud-Platform
A finite volume based Eulerian-Lagrangian model has been created within OpenFOAM® in order to predict the behavior of particle clouds as well as particle deposition thicknesses on substrates under the influence of electro-static effects. The model resolves close to electrode effects as well as phenomena within the entire deposition chamber. It considers fluid dynamic effects, particle inertia, gravity, electric- as well as mechanic particle-particle interaction, corona formation, dynamic particle charging mechanisms, and coupling of particle motion to Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) based flow simulations. Resulting deposition pattern predictions were experimentally validated. It is demonstrated qualitatively and quantitatively that the measured deposition thicknesses and patterns vary by; i) applied voltage, ii) airflow rate, pistol-substrate iii) distance and iv) angle. Furthermore, the software has been prepared such that it works on the cloud computing software KaleidoSim®, which enables the simultaneous browser-based running of hundreds of cases for large parameter studies.
