Direct simulation of turbulent particle transport in electrostatic precipitators

Direct simulation of turbulent particle transport in electrostatic precipitators The dispersion of particles in turbulent duct flow under the influence of electrostatic fields is studied using direct numerical simulation. In this new approach, particles are moved in the temporally and spatially varying turbulent flow field under the influence of electrostatic and gravitational body forces, as well as fluid dynamic drag. The simulations agree well with previously performed experiments (done in geometries typical of wire‐plate and plate‐plate electrostatic precipitators) not only in the overall collection efficiency of particles, but in particle concentration profiles at various axial locations in the flow direction. This gives confidence in the technique that may be used to study different precipitator geometries and flow field configurations, supplementing costly and difficult experiments. Furthermore, information is obtained at a much more detailed level than is possible via experiments, allowing insights into the mechanisms dominating particle collection. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aiche Journal Wiley

Abstract

The dispersion of particles in turbulent duct flow under the influence of electrostatic fields is studied using direct numerical simulation. In this new approach, particles are moved in the temporally and spatially varying turbulent flow field under the influence of electrostatic and gravitational body forces, as well as fluid dynamic drag. The simulations agree well with previously performed experiments (done in geometries typical of wire‐plate and plate‐plate electrostatic precipitators) not only in the overall collection efficiency of particles, but in particle concentration profiles at various axial locations in the flow direction. This gives confidence in the technique that may be used to study different precipitator geometries and flow field configurations, supplementing costly and difficult experiments. Furthermore, information is obtained at a much more detailed level than is possible via experiments, allowing insights into the mechanisms dominating particle collection.
