Fluent:  Flow in a Corrugated Tubular Membrane

Person in charge: P. Schmitz
Objective :
The aim of this task is to test the coupling between turbulent flow and porous media flow in Fluent. The example is the flow in a corrugated tubular membrane used in crossflow microfiltration processes. Different porous media will be considered (weak permeability and high permeability) allowing for the application of the different models of porous media flows proposed by Fluent.
