SUGAR BEET CLAMP CFD MODELLING: FIRST REAL TEST.

Feature image: A logo fitting of this project

OpenFoam version: 9

Solver: pimpleFoam and clampPimpleFoam v5

Case: clamp_15

JUST ENJOY

35 hours of simulation using actual field data. I’m not going to ruin this moment by comparing the model results with the experimental temperature data taken from within the clamp…

Temperature of sugar beets in a clamp. 35 hours of simulation, logged at 15 minute intervals. Temperature scale is from 0.5 C to 3.0 C. The background blue is 0.9 C. The airflow during this period was always left-to-right.

For reference, it took ca. 2 hours to run this 35 hour simulation.

Field data for the period of the above simulation

NEXT

Compare these results to the experimental data, and build out the system so that it can handle airflow going right to left.
