Geometry two - simulation with fluent

To compare the differences results given by fluent and jadim. Firstly, same parameters with one group which is adopted by jadim in utilized, as shown in the table below.

$$\rho_{water} /\rho_{oil}$$ (kg/m3) $$\nu_{water} /\nu_{oil}$$ (Pa.s) $$ \sigma_{oil/water} $$ (N/m) inlet/outlet lenght (m) inlet velocity (m/s) mesh size (m) inlet Re
1000;800 2;20 0.487 0.02;0.05 5 0.45*0.35

With fluent, we have more dispersed phase due to the high viscosity. The differences for the results of jadim of fluent will be discussed later.

Then the real parameters of the fluids is used to see the differences.

$$\rho_{water} /\rho_{oil}$$ (kg/m3) $$\nu_{water} /\nu_{oil}$$ (Pa.s) $$ \sigma_{oil/water} $$ (N/m) inlet/outlet lenght (m) inlet velocity (m/s) mesh size (m) inlet Re
1000;800 0.001;0.01 0.025 0.02;0.05 0.066 0.45*0.35

For the real parameters of the fluids, the viscosity is much smaller, the velocity is small, The weber number is very small, so the interface tension plays an important role in the process, so the interface does not change.
