Free Surface Modeling Methods

An interface between a gas and liquid is often referred to as a free surface. The reason for the “free” designation arises from the large difference in the densities of the gas and liquid (e.g., the ratio of density for water to air is 1000). A low gas density means that its inertia can generally be ignored compared to that of the liquid. In this sense the liquid moves independently, or freely, with respect to the gas. The only influence of the gas is the pressure it exerts on the liquid surface. In other words, the gas-liquid surface is not constrained, but free.

자유 표면 모델링 방법

기체와 액체 사이의 계면은 종종 자유 표면이라고합니다.  ‘자유’라는 호칭이 된 것은 기체와 액체의 밀도가 크게 다르기 때문입니다 (예를 들어, 물 공기에 대한 밀도 비는 1000입니다).  기체의 밀도가 낮다는 것은 액체의 관성에 비해 기체의 관성은 일반적으로 무시할 수 있다는 것을 의미합니다.  이러한 의미에서, 액체는 기체에 대해 독립적으로, 즉 자유롭게 움직입니다.  기체의 유일한 효과는 액체의 표면에 대한 압력입니다.  즉, 기체와 액체의 표면은 제약되어있는 것이 아니라 자유롭다는 것입니다.

In heat-transfer texts the term ‘Stephen Problem’ is often used to describe free boundary problems. In this case, however, the boundaries are phase boundaries, e.g., the boundary between ice and water that changes in response to the heat supplied from convective fluid currents.

열전달에 관한 문서는 자유 경계 문제를 묘사할 때 “Stephen Problem’”라는 용어가 자주 사용됩니다.  그러나 여기에서 경계는 상(phase) 경계, 즉 대류적인 유체의 흐름에 의해 공급된 열에 반응하여 변화하는 얼음과 물 사이의 경계 등을 말합니다.

Whatever the name, it should be obvious that the presence of a free or moving boundary introduces serious complications for any type of analysis. For all but the simplest of problems, it is necessary to resort to numerical solutions. Even then, free surfaces require the introduction of special methods to define their location, their movement, and their influence on a flow.

이름이 무엇이든, 자유 또는 이동 경계가 존재한다는 것은 어떤 유형의 분석에도 복잡한 문제를 야기한다는 것은 분명합니다. 가장 간단한 문제를 제외한 모든 문제에 대해서는 수치 해석에 의존할 필요가 있습니다. 그 경우에도 자유 표면은 위치, 이동 및 흐름에 미치는 영향을 정의하기 위한 특별한 방법이 필요합니다.

In the following discussion we will briefly review the types of numerical approaches that have been used to model free surfaces, indicating the advantages and disadvantages of each method. Regardless of the method employed, there are three essential features needed to properly model free surfaces:

  1. A scheme is needed to describe the shape and location of a surface,
  2. An algorithm is required to evolve the shape and location with time, and
  3. Free-surface boundary conditions must be applied at the surface.

다음 설명에서는 자유 표면 모델링에 사용되어 온 다양한 유형의 수치적 접근에 대해 간략하게 검토하고 각 방법의 장단점을 설명합니다. 어떤 방법을 사용하는지에 관계없이 자유롭게 표면을 적절히 모델화하는 다음의 3 가지 기능이 필요합니다.

  1. 표면의 형상과 위치를 설명하는 방식
  2. 시간에 따라 모양과 위치를 업데이트 하는 알고리즘
  3. 표면에 적용할 자유 표면 경계 조건

Lagrangian Grid Methods

Conceptually, the simplest means of defining and tracking a free surface is to construct a Lagrangian grid that is imbedded in and moves with the fluid. Many finite-element methods use this approach. Because the grid and fluid move together, the grid automatically tracks free surfaces.

라그랑주 격자 법

개념적으로 자유 표면을 정의하고 추적하는 가장 간단한 방법은 유체와 함께 이동하는 라그랑주 격자를 구성하는 것입니다. 많은 유한 요소 방법이 이 접근 방식을 사용합니다. 격자와 유체가 함께 움직이기 때문에 격자는 자동으로 자유 표면을 추적합니다.

At a surface it is necessary to modify the approximating equations to include the proper boundary conditions and to account for the fact that fluid exists only on one side of the boundary. If this is not done, asymmetries develop that eventually destroy the accuracy of a simulation.

표면에서 적절한 경계 조건을 포함하고 유체가 경계의 한면에만 존재한다는 사실을 설명하기 위해 근사 방정식을 수정해야합니다. 이것이 수행되지 않으면 결국 시뮬레이션의 정확도를 훼손하는 비대칭이 발생합니다.

The principal limitation of Lagrangian methods is that they cannot track surfaces that break apart or intersect. Even large amplitude surface motions can be difficult to track without introducing regridding techniques such as the Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) method. References 1970 and 1974 may be consulted for early examples of these approaches.

라그랑지안 방법의 주요 제한은 분리되거나 교차하는 표면을 추적 할 수 없다는 것입니다. ALE (Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian) 방법과 같은 격자 재생성 기법을 도입하지 않으면 진폭이 큰 표면 움직임도 추적하기 어려울 수 있습니다. 이러한 접근법의 초기 예를 보려면 참고 문헌 1970 및 1974를 참조하십시오.

The remaining free-surface methods discussed here use a fixed, Eulerian grid as the basis for computations so that more complicated surface motions may be treated.

여기에서 논의된 나머지 자유 표면 방법은 보다 복잡한 표면 움직임을 처리할 수 있도록 고정된 오일러 그리드를 계산의 기준으로 사용합니다.

Surface Height Method

Low amplitude sloshing, shallow water waves, and other free-surface motions in which the surface does not deviate too far from horizontal, can be described by the height, H, of the surface relative to some reference elevation. Time evolution of the height is governed by the kinematic equation, where (u,v,w) are fluid velocities in the (x,y,z) directions. This equation is a mathematical expression of the fact that the surface must move with the fluid:

표면 높이 법

낮은 진폭의 슬로 싱, 얕은 물결 및 표면이 수평에서 너무 멀리 벗어나지 않는 기타 자유 표면 운동은 일부 기준 고도에 대한 표면의 높이 H로 설명 할 수 있습니다. 높이의 시간 진화는 운동학 방정식에 의해 제어되며, 여기서 (u, v, w)는 (x, y, z) 방향의 유체 속도입니다. 이 방정식은 표면이 유체와 함께 움직여야한다는 사실을 수학적으로 표현한 것입니다.

Finite-difference approximations to this equation are easy to implement. Further, only the height values at a set of horizontal locations must be recorded so the memory requirements for a three-dimensional numerical solution are extremely small. Finally, the application of free-surface boundary conditions is also simplified by the condition on the surface that it remains nearly horizontal. Examples of this technique can be found in References 1971 and 1975.

이 방정식의 유한 차분 근사를 쉽게 실행할 수 있습니다.  또한 3 차원 수치 해법의 메모리 요구 사항이 극도로 작아지도록 같은 높이의 위치 값만을 기록해야합니다.  마지막으로 자유 표면 경계 조건의 적용도 거의 수평을 유지하는 표면의 조건에 의해 간소화됩니다.  이 방법의 예는 참고 문헌의 1971 및 1975을 참조하십시오.

Marker-and-Cell (MAC) Method

The earliest numerical method devised for time-dependent, free-surface, flow problems was the Marker-and-Cell (MAC) method (see Ref. 1965). This scheme is based on a fixed, Eulerian grid of control volumes. The location of fluid within the grid is determined by a set of marker particles that move with the fluid, but otherwise have no volume, mass or other properties.

MAC 방법

시간 의존성을 가지는 자유 표면 흐름의 문제에 대해 처음 고안된 수치 법이 MAC (Marker-and-Cell) 법입니다 (참고 문헌 1965 참조).  이 구조는 컨트롤 볼륨 고정 오일러 격자를 기반으로합니다.  격자 내의 유체의 위치는 유체와 함께 움직이고, 그 이외는 부피, 질량, 기타 특성을 갖지 않는 일련의 마커 입자에 의해 결정됩니다.

Grid cells containing markers are considered occupied by fluid, while those without markers are empty (or void). A free surface is defined to exist in any grid cell that contains particles and that also has at least one neighboring grid cell that is void. The location and orientation of the surface within the cell was not part of the original MAC method.

마커를 포함한 격자 셀은 유체로 채워져있는 것으로 간주되며 마커가 없는 격자 셀은 빈(무효)것입니다.  입자를 포함하고, 적어도 하나의 인접 격자 셀이 무효인 격자의 자유 표면은 존재하는 것으로 정의됩니다.  셀 표면의 위치와 방향은 원래의 MAC 법에 포함되지 않았습니다.

Evolution of surfaces was computed by moving the markers with locally interpolated fluid velocities. Some special treatments were required to define the fluid properties in newly filled grid cells and to cancel values in cells that are emptied.

표면의 발전(개선)은 국소적으로 보간된 유체 속도로 마커를 이동하여 계산되었습니다.  새롭게 충전된 격자 셀의 유체 특성을 정의하거나 비어있는 셀의 값을 취소하거나 하려면 특별한 처리가 필요했습니다.

The application of free-surface boundary conditions consisted of assigning the gas pressure to all surface cells. Also, velocity components were assigned to all locations on or immediately outside the surface in such a way as to approximate conditions of incompressibility and zero-surface shear stress.

자유 표면 경계 조건의 적용은 모든 표면 셀에 가스 압력을 할당하는 것으로 구성되었습니다. 또한 속도 성분은 비압축성 및 제로 표면 전단 응력의 조건을 근사화하는 방식으로 표면 위 또는 외부의 모든 위치에 할당되었습니다.

The extraordinary success of the MAC method in solving a wide range of complicated free-surface flow problems is well documented in numerous publications. One reason for this success is that the markers do not track surfaces directly, but instead track fluid volumes. Surfaces are simply the boundaries of the volumes, and in this sense surfaces may appear, merge or disappear as volumes break apart or coalesce.

폭넓게 복잡한 자유 표면 흐름 문제 해결에 MAC 법이 놀라운 성공을 거두고 있는 것은 수많은 문헌에서 충분히 입증되고 있습니다.  이 성공 이유 중 하나는 마커가 표면을 직접 추적하는 것이 아니라 유체의 체적을 추적하는 것입니다.  표면은 체적의 경계에 불과하며, 그러한 의미에서 표면은 분할 또는 합체된 부피로 출현(appear), 병합, 소멸 할 가능성이 있습니다.

A variety of improvements have contributed to an increase in the accuracy and applicability of the original MAC method. For example, applying gas pressures at interpolated surface locations within cells improves the accuracy in problems driven by hydrostatic forces, while the inclusion of surface tension forces extends the method to a wider class of problems (see Refs. 1969, 1975).

다양한 개선으로 인해 원래 MAC 방법의 정확성과 적용 가능성이 증가했습니다. 예를 들어, 셀 내 보간 된 표면 위치에 가스 압력을 적용하면 정 수력으로 인한 문제의 정확도가 향상되는 반면 표면 장력의 포함은 방법을 더 광범위한 문제로 확장합니다 (참조 문헌. 1969, 1975).

In spite of its successes, the MAC method has been used primarily for two-dimensional simulations because it requires considerable memory and CPU time to accommodate the necessary number of marker particles. Typically, an average of about 16 markers in each grid cell is needed to ensure an accurate tracking of surfaces undergoing large deformations.

수많은 성공에도 불구하고 MAC 방법은 필요한 수의 마커 입자를 수용하기 위해 상당한 메모리와 CPU 시간이 필요하기 때문에 주로 2 차원 시뮬레이션에 사용되었습니다. 일반적으로 큰 변형을 겪는 표면의 정확한 추적을 보장하려면 각 그리드 셀에 평균 약 16 개의 마커가 필요합니다.

Another limitation of marker particles is that they don’t do a very good job of following flow processes in regions involving converging/diverging flows. Markers are usually interpreted as tracking the centroids of small fluid elements. However, when those fluid elements get pulled into long convoluted strands, the markers may no longer be good indicators of the fluid configuration. This can be seen, for example, at flow stagnation points where markers pile up in one direction, but are drawn apart in a perpendicular direction. If they are pulled apart enough (i.e., further than one grid cell width) unphysical voids may develop in the flow.

마커 입자의 또 다른 한계는 수렴 / 발산 흐름이 포함된 영역에서 흐름 프로세스를 따라가는 작업을 잘 수행하지 못한다는 것입니다. 마커는 일반적으로 작은 유체 요소의 중심을 추적하는 것으로 해석됩니다. 그러나 이러한 유체 요소가 길고 복잡한 가닥으로 당겨지면 마커가 더 이상 유체 구성의 좋은 지표가 될 수 없습니다. 예를 들어 마커가 한 방향으로 쌓여 있지만 수직 방향으로 떨어져 있는 흐름 정체 지점에서 볼 수 있습니다. 충분히 분리되면 (즉, 하나의 그리드 셀 너비 이상) 비 물리적 공극이 흐름에서 발생할 수 있습니다.

Surface Marker Method

One way to limit the memory and CPU time consumption of markers is to keep marker particles only on surfaces and not in the interior of fluid regions. Of course, this removes the volume tracking property of the MAC method and requires additional logic to determine when and how surfaces break apart or coalesce.

표면 마커 법

마커의 메모리 및 CPU 시간의 소비를 제한하는 방법 중 하나는 마커 입자를 유체 영역의 내부가 아니라 표면에만 보존하는 것입니다.  물론 이는 MAC 법의 체적 추적 특성이 배제되기 때문에 표면이 분할 또는 합체하는 방식과 시기를 특정하기위한 논리를 추가해야합니다.

In two dimensions the marker particles on a surface can be arranged in a linear order along the surface. This arrangement introduces several advantages, such as being able to maintain a uniform particle spacing and simplifying the computation of intersections between different surfaces. Surface markers also provide a convenient way to locate the surface within a grid cell for the application of boundary conditions.

2 차원의 경우 표면 마커 입자는 표면을 따라 선형으로 배치 할 수 있습니다.  이 배열은 입자의 간격을 균일하게 유지할 수있는 별도의 표면이 교차하는 부분의 계산이 쉽다는 등 몇 가지 장점이 있습니다.  또한 표면 마커를 사용하여 경계 조건을 적용하면 격자 셀의 표면을 간단한 방법으로 찾을 수 있습니다.

Unfortunately, in three-dimensions there is no simple way to order particles on surfaces, and this leads to a major failing of the surface marker technique. Regions may exist where surfaces are expanding and no markers fill the space. Without markers the configuration of the surface is unknown, consequently there is no way to add markers. Reference 1975 contains examples that show the advantages and limitations of this method.

불행히도 3 차원에서는 표면에 입자를 정렬하는 간단한 방법이 없으며 이로 인해 표면 마커 기술이 크게 실패합니다. 표면이 확장되고 마커가 공간을 채우지 않는 영역이 존재할 수 있습니다. 마커가 없으면 표면의 구성을 알 수 없으므로 마커를 추가 할 방법이 없습니다.
참고 문헌 1975이 방법의 장점과 한계를 보여주는 예제가 포함되어 있습니다.

Volume-of-Fluid (VOF) Method

The last method to be discussed is based on the concept of a fluid volume fraction. The idea for this approach originated as a way to have the powerful volume-tracking feature of the MAC method without its large memory and CPU costs.

VOF (Volume-of-Fluid) 법

마지막으로 설명하는 방법은 유체 부피 분율의 개념을 기반으로합니다. 이 접근 방식에 대한 아이디어는 대용량 메모리 및 CPU 비용없이 MAC 방식의 강력한 볼륨 추적 기능을 갖는 방법에서 시작되었습니다.

Within each grid cell (control volume) it is customary to retain only one value for each flow quantity (e.g., pressure, velocity, temperature, etc.) For this reason it makes little sense to retain more information for locating a free surface. Following this reasoning, the use of a single quantity, the fluid volume fraction in each grid cell, is consistent with the resolution of the other flow quantities.

각 격자 셀 (제어 체적) 내에서 각 유량 (예 : 압력, 속도, 온도 등)에 대해 하나의 값만 유지하는 것이 일반적입니다. 이러한 이유로 자유 표면을 찾기 위해 더 많은 정보를 유지하는 것은 거의 의미가 없습니다. 이러한 추론에 따라 각 격자 셀의 유체 부피 분율인 단일 수량의 사용은 다른 유량의 해상도와 일치합니다.

If we know the amount of fluid in each cell it is possible to locate surfaces, as well as determine surface slopes and surface curvatures. Surfaces are easy to locate because they lie in cells partially filled with fluid or between cells full of fluid and cells that have no fluid.

각 셀 내의 유체의 양을 알고 있는 경우, 표면의 위치 뿐만 아니라  표면 경사와 표면 곡률을 결정하는 것이 가능합니다.  표면은 유체 가 부분 충전 된 셀 또는 유체가 전체에 충전 된 셀과 유체가 전혀없는 셀 사이에 존재하기 때문에 쉽게 찾을 수 있습니다.

Slopes and curvatures are computed by using the fluid volume fractions in neighboring cells. It is essential to remember that the volume fraction should be a step function, i.e., having a value of either one or zero. Knowing this, the volume fractions in neighboring cells can then be used to locate the position of fluid (and its slope and curvature) within a particular cell.

경사와 곡률은 인접 셀의 유체 체적 점유율을 사용하여 계산됩니다.  체적 점유율은 계단 함수(step function)이어야 합니다, 즉, 값이 1 또는 0 인 것을 기억하는 것이 중요합니다.  이 것을 안다면, 인접 셀의 부피 점유율을 사용하여 특정 셀 내의 유체의 위치 (및 그 경사와 곡률)을 찾을 수 있습니다.

Free-surface boundary conditions must be applied as in the MAC method, i.e., assigning the proper gas pressure (plus equivalent surface tension pressure) as well as determining what velocity components outside the surface should be used to satisfy a zero shear-stress condition at the surface. In practice, it is sometimes simpler to assign velocity gradients instead of velocity components at surfaces.

자유 표면 경계 조건을 MAC 법과 동일하게 적용해야 합니다.  즉, 적절한 기체 압력 (및 대응하는 표면 장력)을 할당하고, 또한 표면에서 제로 전단 응력을 충족 시키려면 표면 외부의 어떤 속도 성분을 사용할 필요가 있는지를 확인합니다.  사실, 표면에서의 속도 성분 대신 속도 구배를 지정하는 것이보다 쉬울 수 있습니다.

Finally, to compute the time evolution of surfaces, a technique is needed to move volume fractions through a grid in such a way that the step-function nature of the distribution is retained. The basic kinematic equation for fluid fractions is similar to that for the height-function method, where F is the fraction of fluid function:

마지막으로, 표면의 시간 변화를 계산하려면 분포의 계단 함수의 성질이 유지되는 방법으로 격자를 통과하고 부피 점유율을 이동하는 방법이 필요합니다.  유체 점유율의 기본적인 운동학방정식은 높이 함수(height-function) 법과 유사합니다.  F는 유체 점유율 함수입니다.

A straightforward numerical approximation cannot be used to model this equation because numerical diffusion and dispersion errors destroy the sharp, step-function nature of the F distribution.

이 방정식을 모델링 할 때 간단한 수치 근사는 사용할 수 없습니다.  수치의 확산과 분산 오류는 F 분포의 명확한 계단 함수(step-function)의 성질이 손상되기 때문입니다.

It is easy to accurately model the solution to this equation in one dimension such that the F distribution retains its zero or one values. Imagine fluid is filling a column of cells from bottom to top. At some instant the fluid interface is in the middle region of a cell whose neighbor below is filled and whose neighbor above is empty. The fluid orientation in the neighboring cells means the interface must be located above the bottom of the cell by an amount equal to the fluid fraction in the cell. Then the computation of how much fluid to move into the empty cell above can be modified to first allow the empty region of the surface-containing cell to fill before transmitting fluid on to the next cell.

F 분포가 0 또는 1의 값을 유지하는 같은 1 차원에서이 방정식의 해를 정확하게 모델링하는 것은 간단합니다.  1 열의 셀에 위에서 아래까지 유체가 충전되는 경우를 상상해보십시오.  어느 순간에 액체 계면은 셀의 중간 영역에 있고, 그 아래쪽의 인접 셀은 충전되어 있고, 상단 인접 셀은 비어 있습니다.  인접 셀 내의 유체의 방향은 계면과 셀의 하단과의 거리가 셀 내의 유체 점유율과 같아야 한다는 것을 의미합니다.  그 다음 먼저 표면을 포함하는 셀의 빈 공간을 충전 한 후 다음 셀로 유체를 보내도록 위쪽의 빈 셀에 이동하는 유체의 양의 계산을 변경할 수 있습니다.

In two or three dimensions a similar procedure of using information from neighboring cells can be used, but it is not possible to be as accurate as in the one-dimensional case. The problem with more than one dimension is that an exact determination of the shape and location of the surface cannot be made. Nevertheless, this technique can be made to work well as evidenced by the large number of successful applications that have been completed using the VOF method. References 1975, 1980, and 1981 should be consulted for the original work on this technique.

2 차원과 3 차원에서 인접 셀의 정보를 사용하는 유사한 절차를 사용할 수 있지만, 1 차원의 경우만큼 정확하게 하는 것은 불가능합니다.  2 차원 이상의 경우의 문제는 표면의 모양과 위치를 정확히 알 수없는 것입니다.  그래도 VOF 법을 사용하여 달성 된 다수의 성공 사례에서 알 수 있듯이 이 방법을 잘 작동시킬 수 있습니다.  이 기법에 관한 초기의 연구 내용은 참고 문헌 1975,1980,1981를 참조하십시오.

The VOF method has lived up to its goal of providing a method that is as powerful as the MAC method without the overhead of that method. Its use of volume tracking as opposed to surface-tracking function means that it is robust enough to handle the breakup and coalescence of fluid masses. Further, because it uses a continuous function it does not suffer from the lack of divisibility that discrete particles exhibit.

VOF 법은 MAC 법만큼 강력한 기술을 오버 헤드없이 제공한다는 목표를 달성 해 왔습니다.  표면 추적이 아닌 부피 추적 기능을 사용하는 것은 유체 질량의 분할과 합체를 처리하는 데 충분한 내구성을 가지고 있다는 것을 의미합니다.  또한 연속 함수를 사용하기 때문에 이산된 입자에서 발생하는 숫자를 나눌 수 없는 문제를 겪지 않게 됩니다.

Variable-Density Approximation to the VOF Method

One feature of the VOF method that requires special treatment is the application of boundary conditions. As a surface moves through a grid, the cells containing fluid continually change, which means that the solution region is also changing. At the free boundaries of this changing region the proper free surface stress conditions must also be applied.

VOF 법의 가변 밀도 근사

VOF 법의 특수 처리가 필요한 기능 중 하나는 경계 조건의 적용입니다.  표면이 격자를 통과하여 이동할 때 유체를 포함하는 셀은 끊임없이 변화합니다.  즉, 계산 영역도 변화하고 있다는 것입니다.  이 변화하고있는 영역의 자유 경계에는 적절한 자유 표면 응력 조건도 적용해야합니다.

Updating the flow region and applying boundary conditions is not a trivial task. For this reason some approximations to the VOF method have been used in which flow is computed in both liquid and gas regions. Typically, this is done by treating the flow as a single fluid having a variable density. The F function is used to define the density. An argument is then made that because the flow equations are solved in both liquid and gas regions there is no need to set interfacial boundary conditions.

유체 영역의 업데이트 및 경계 조건의 적용은 중요한 작업입니다.  따라서 액체와 기체의 두 영역에서 흐름이 계산되는 VOF 법에 약간의 근사가 사용되어 왔습니다.  일반적으로 가변 밀도를 가진 단일 유체로 흐름을 처리함으로써 이루어집니다.  밀도를 정의하려면 F 함수를 사용합니다.  그리고, 흐름 방정식은 액체와 기체의 두 영역에서 계산되기 때문에 계면의 경계 조건을 설정할 필요가 없다는 논증이 이루어집니다.

Unfortunately, this approach does not work very well in practice for two reasons. First, the sensitivity of a gas region to pressure changes is generally much greater than that in liquid regions. This makes it difficult to achieve convergence in the coupled pressure-velocity solution. Sometimes very large CPU times are required with this technique.

공교롭게도 이 방법은 두 가지 이유로 인해 실제로는 그다지 잘 작동하지 않습니다.  하나는 압력의 변화에 대한 기체 영역의 감도가 일반적으로 액체 영역보다 훨씬 큰 것입니다.  따라서 압력 – 속도 결합 해법 수렴을 달성하는 것은 어렵습니다.  이 기술은 필요한 CPU 시간이 매우 커질 수 있습니다.

The second, and more significant, reason is associated with the possibility of a tangential velocity discontinuity at interfaces. Because of their different responses to pressure, gas and liquid velocities at an interface are usually quite different. In the Variable-Density model interfaces are moved with an average velocity, but this often leads to unrealistic movement of the interfaces.

두 번째 더 중요한 이유는 계면에서 접선 속도가 불연속이되는 가능성에 관련이 있습니다.  압력에 대한 반응이 다르기 때문에 계면에서 기체와 액체의 속도는 일반적으로 크게 다릅니다.  가변 밀도 모델은 계면은 평균 속도로 동작하지만, 이는 계면의 움직임이 비현실적으로 되는 경우가 많습니다.

Even though the Variable-Density method is sometimes referred to as a VOF method, because is uses a fraction-of-fluid function, this designation is incorrect. For accurately tracking sharp liquid-gas interfaces it is necessary to actually treat the interface as a discontinuity. This means it is necessary to have a technique to define an interface discontinuity, as well as a way to impose the proper boundary conditions at that interface. It is also necessary to use a special numerical method to track interface motions though a grid without destroying its character as a discontinuity.

가변 밀도 방법은 유체 분율 함수를 사용하기 때문에 VOF 방법이라고도하지만 이것은 올바르지 않습니다. 날카로운 액체-가스 인터페이스를 정확하게 추적하려면 인터페이스를 실제로 불연속으로 처리해야합니다. 즉, 인터페이스 불연속성을 정의하는 기술과 해당 인터페이스에서 적절한 경계 조건을 적용하는 방법이 필요합니다. 또한 불연속성으로 특성을 훼손하지 않고 격자를 통해 인터페이스 동작을 추적하기 위해 특수한 수치 방법을 사용해야합니다.

Summary

A brief discussion of the various techniques used to numerically model free surfaces has been given here with some comments about their relative advantages and disadvantages. Readers should not be surprised to learn that there have been numerous variations of these basic techniques proposed over the years. Probably the most successful of the methods is the VOF technique because of its simplicity and robustness. It is this method, with some refinement, that is used in the FLOW-3D program.

여기에서는 자유 표면을 수치적으로 모델링 할 때 사용하는 다양한 방법에 대해 상대적인 장점과 단점에 대한 설명을 포함하여 쉽게 설명하였습니다.  오랜 세월에 걸쳐 이러한 기본적인 방법이 많이 제안되어 온 것을 알고도 독자 여러분은 놀라지 않을 것입니다.  아마도 가장 성과를 거둔 방법은 간결하고 강력한 VOF 법 입니다.  이 방법에 일부 개량을 더한 것이 현재 FLOW-3D 프로그램에서 사용되고 있습니다.

Attempts to improve the VOF method have centered on better, more accurate, ways to move fluid fractions through a grid. Other developments have attempted to apply the method in connection with body-fitted grids and to employ more than one fluid fraction function in order to model more than one fluid component. A discussion of these developments is beyond the scope of this introduction.

VOF 법의 개선은 더 나은, 더 정확한 방법으로 유체 점유율을 격자를 통과하여 이동하는 것에 중점을 두어 왔습니다.  기타 개발은 물체 적합 격자(body-fitted grids) 관련 기법을 적용하거나 여러 유체 성분을 모델링하기 위해 여러 유체 점유율 함수를 채용하기도 했습니다.  이러한 개발에 대한 논의는 여기에서의 설명 범위를 벗어납니다.

표면 장력의 온도 의존성은 유체 방울을 패턴 있는 표면 위로 전달하는 데 사용될 수 있습니다. 표면은 유체 방울이 친수성-수소성 인터페이스에 의해 형성된 채널을 따르도록 제한되도록 친수성 또는 친수성 접촉 각도로 패턴화됩니다. 또한 프로그램 가능한 방식으로 가열된 마이크로 히터의 배열은 열전압 작동을 유발하여 유체 방울을 뜨거운 영역에서 차가운 지역으로 유도합니다. 아래 이미지는 문제 설정의 상단 및 단면 뷰(Anton A)를 보여줍니다. Darhuber 외.) 다음에 Flow-3D를 설정합니다.

Liquid droplet moving along hydrophilic microstripe
Top-view of a liquid droplet moving along a hydrophilic microstripe. The array of Ti-resistors (shown in light gray) beneath the hydrophilic stripes locally heat the droplet thereby modifying the surface tension and propelling the liquid toward the colder regions of the device surface. The dark gray stripes represent the leads and contacts (Au) for the heating resistors.
Cross sectional view of device
Cross-sectional view of a portion of the device containing two micro-heaters and an overlying droplet.

더 차가운 표면 온도 영역은 인접한 따뜻한 지점보다 더 높은 표면 장력을 유지하여 액체를 당기는 접선 표면 힘을가합니다. 부분적 습윤 (접촉각> 0) 표면은 전체 습윤 표면 (접촉각 = 0)에 비해 부피 손실이 적은 유체 수송을 허용하기 때문에 바람직한 옵션입니다.

FLOW-3D setup of three microheaters

Top view of the setup in FLOW-3D showing three microheaters in pink, yellow and blue respectively. The central hydrophilic strip is shown in black with a fluid (water) droplet in sky blue.

아래 애니메이션은 완전히 젖은 표면과 부분적으로 젖은 표면의 비교를 보여줍니다. 예상대로 완전히 젖은 표면은 부분적으로 젖은 표면보다 액적을 더 평평하게 (그리고 더 많이 퍼지게) 만듭니다. 히터가 한 번에 하나씩 활성화되면 물방울이 더 차가운 영역으로 이동됩니다. 더 많은 유체가 남겨질수록 시뮬레이션이 끝날 때까지 완전히 젖은 표면은 더 많은 유체 볼륨을 잃는 것을 볼 수 있습니다. 따라서 부분적으로 젖은 표면은 유체 손실을 줄이기위한 더 바람직한 옵션입니다. 두 경우 모두 소수성 표면으로 둘러싸인 중앙 친수성 스트립으로 인해 물방울이 중앙에 머물러야합니다.

[FLOW-3D 물리모델] Surface Tension / 표면 장력

Surface Tension / 표면 장력

표면장력은 기체와 액체 사이 또는 두 섞이지 않는 액체 사이에서 뚜렷한 경계면에 접한 평면에 작용하는 힘이다. 이 힘은 두 물질 사이 분자간 힘의 차이에 의해 발생한다. FLOW-3D 에서 표면장력은 1 또는 2유체의 유동에서 모델링 될 수 있으며 항상 General Interface tracking 에서 활성화된 Free surface or sharp interface 모델과 함께 사용 되어야 한다.

이 모델은 Physics Surface tensionActivate surface tension model 를 체크함으로써 활성화된다. 표면장력 계수는(Surface tension coefficient, SIGMA) 또는 물성치 트리에서 지정된다: Fluids Surface Tension Surface Tension Coefficient. 여기서 정의되는 전반적 Contact angle은 경계면이 고체벽 경계와 고체요소를 만날 때 습윤거동을 조절한다. 접촉각 변수는 0.0(완전습윤)과 1.0(완전 비습윤) 사이의 값을 취한다. 추가로 각 요소의 개별적 접촉각이 Meshing and Geometry Component Properties Surface properties Component Contact Angle에서 지정될 수 있다. 그렇지 않은 경우 전반적인 Contact angle로 기본값이 지정된다.

기본설정은 90도의 접촉각이다. 표면장력이 활성화되면 벽 접착이 활성화된다; 어떤 요소에서는 벽 접착을 해제시킬 수 없다. 모든 유체는 고체표면에서 접착 거동을 보여주며 습윤이거나 비습윤에 상관 없이 그 거동을 나타내기 위해 거동이 접촉각을 지정하는 것이 필요하다.

표면장력 계수는 온도의 함수이다. 온도와 표면장력간의 단순한 선형 관계식을 위해 다음에 따르는  Temperature Dependence (Fluids 내 Temperature sensitivity)에 대한 값을 준다.

where: 여기서

  • σ 는 계산된 표면 장력계수
  • σ0 는 사용자 정의된 Surface tension coefficient
  • Temperature Dependence
  • T 는 지역온도이며
  • T 는 사용자 지정 Reference Temperature (Fluids Properties에서 지정)

이 값들은 Physics Surface tension 대화상자나 Fluids Surface Tension에서 입력된다. 온도 의존 모델을 사용하기 위해서 유체 내 열 전달을 활성화 시키는 것이 필요하다.(Physics Heat transferFluid internal energy advection).

표면장력이 온도의 선형함수가 아닌 경우, Surface tension coefficient in Fluids Surface TensionTabular 버튼을 선택함으로써 표면장력 및 온도와 관련된 표 형식의 데이터를 입력할 수 있다.

자유표면이 부서지고 변형되는 유동에서 작은 유체방울이 간혹 표면장력 압력 계산의 수치적 잡음 때문에 발생될 수 있다. 이 방울들은 작은 표면 곡률 때문에 표면 압력 분포에 바람직하지 않은 변화를 일으킬 수 있다. 이런 방울 들은 이러한 수치적 부 정확성을 감소시키기 위해 제거될 수 있다. 이 옵션은 Fluid fraction cleanup in Numerics Volume-of-fluid advection Advanced options의 값을 입력함으로써 조절된다.

이 변수에 양수 값을 지정하면 유체분율 제거옵션이 활성화된다. 한 셀과 그 주변 셀의 유체분율 값이 이보다 작으면 유체는 그 셀에서 완전히 제거될 것이다.

제거된 체적은 누적 체적 에러로 기록되고 시간의 함수로 모사 후에 그려진다.; 이는 Fluid fraction cleanup 선택이 유체 체적이 크게 변경된 경우 보여진다. 2유체 표면장력 문제의 Fluid fraction cleanup 기본값은 0.05이다. 다른 모사의 경우 이의 기본값은0이다.

표면장력 모델은 곡률, 즉, 2차 미분 값에 의존하기 때문에 코드내의 다른 모델보다 불규칙한 격자에 더 민감하다. 가능하면 정육면체(2차원의 정사각형)에 가까운 제어체적을 사용하는 것을 추천한다.

 

표면 장력 / Surface Tension

표면 장력 / Surface Tension

FLOW-3D에 추가 된 최초의 물리 모델 중 하나는 표면 장력이었습니다.

이 모델은 잉크젯, 무중력 환경에서의 액체 연료 거동 및 다양한 MEMS (마이크로 전자 기계 시스템) 장치와 같이 다양한 종류의 응용 분야에서 수년 동안 널리 사용되어 왔습니다. 이 후에 모델의 개선 및 확장에 대한 많은 사용자 요청이 처리되었습니다.
표면 장력에 대해 보다 나은 성능개선을 위해 FLOW-3D 버전 11에 대한 새로운 모델이 개발되었습니다. 이 모델은 계산된 모든 표면 장력의 정확성과 임의 형상의 솔리드 표면을 잡아 당기는 접착력의 정확성을 향상시킵니다. 또한 이 새로운 모델은 다공성 물질의 모세관 압력과 비 균일한 표면 장력으로 인한 접선 표면 장력을 가지고 있습니다.

새로운 모델의 예는 무중력에 포함된 원형 벽을 적시는 단순한 문제입니다.

그림 1은 실린더와 접촉각이 0 도인 물로 채워진 0.25m 직경의 실린더 75 %의 경우를 보여줍니다. 버블은 10 초 전에 벽에서 깨끗하게 분리되어 탱크를 가로 질러 움직입니다. 비 구형은 기포 표면에서 모세관 파가 전파되기 때문입니다.

그림 1. 0.0, 2.5, 5.0 및 10.0 초에 무중력에서 접촉 각이 0 인 실린더 표면의 유체 (적색) 습윤 표면.

다른 예가 그림5에 도시되어 있습니다. 2에서 서로 다른 밀도의 2 개의 초기 구형 방울이 (플롯의 색으로 표시됨) 단단한 벽을 향해 아래로 이동합니다. 플롯의 시간은 0.0, 0.01, 0.02 및 0.03 초입니다. 방울은 직경이 0.0017m, 밀도가 다르지만 표면 장력 계수는 1.872 뉴턴 / m입니다.

그림 2. 접시쪽으로 움직이는 구형의 물방울. 새로운 표면 장력 모델로 시뮬레이션. 색상은 밀도를 나타냅니다.

코팅분야

Coating

FLOW-3D는 산업계 및 학계의 코팅 연구원들이 기계 설계 연구, Display 공정개발 및 최적화를 위해 사용했습니다. 미크론 규모의 코팅 물리학을 이해하는 것은 코팅 유체 유변학의 복잡한 특성과 기판 및 Die와의 상호 작용으로 인해 어려울 수 있습니다.

FLOW-3D 는 비용이 많이 드는 실제 실험에 의존하지 않고, 코팅 프로세스를 분석할 수 있는 편리한 방법을 제공합니다. FLOW-3D는 표면 장력, Wall 접착, 용액 운반, 밀도 기반 흐름 및 상 변화의 영향을 이해하기위한 고밀도 모델링을 제공합니다.

Forward roll coating 공정에 대한 FLOW-3D의 시뮬레이션은 high capillary number수로 인한ribbing 결함을 포착합니다. 이 모델은 backing rollers가 400 micron nip을 통해 유체를 끌어 당길 때 표면 장력과 점도의 효과를 통합합니다. 시뮬레이션은 Lee, et al [1]의 연구를 기반으로합니다.

ribbing 시작에 대한 정확한 예측을 통해 엔지니어는 결함을 방지하기 위한 공정 매개 변수를 식별하고 수정할 수 있습니다.
