FLOW-3D Example

FLOW-3D provides a complete and versatile CFD simulation platform for engineers investigating the dynamic behavior of liquids and gas in a wide range of industrial applications and physical processes. FLOW-3D focuses on free surface and multi-phase applications, serving a broad range of industries including microfluidics, bio-medical devices, water civil infrastructure, aerospace, consumer products, additive manufacturing, inkjet printing, laser welding, automotive, offshore, energy and automotive.

Given below is an example of a simulation run in FLOW-3D using Rescale.

Combined Sewer Overflow Example

The simulation begins with a stagnant low level of fluid in the main sewer, the inflow boundary condition is adjusted with time to simulate a rising water level. Initially this only increases the flow rate and fluid elevation in the interceptor sewer. At a given height the water begins to ‘overflow’ into the regulating vault section of the structure. The fluid then exits into the culvert.
