Title : Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD as an innovative tool for stimulating the smoke drying process and for modeling the construction elements of a smoke-drying chamber
Key words : Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), simulation model, smoking chamber, smoke-drying process, power nozzles construction
Summary :

This paper elaborates upon the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools in the engineering practice as an integral part of progress of the chemical engineering of smoke-drying taking into consideration the technical progress and smoke-drying methods. The use of tools connected to CDF modeling allowed collecting crucial information concerning the performed process of smoke-drying for the assortment geometrically shaped similarly to a piece of oval ham. A single truck chamber was a base construction for solutions of the suggested modification of the powering elements (nozzles) as well as for the computer model geometry of the construction of an empty chamber and a full chamber itself. Discretization has been made in the ANSYS Mechanical APDL 12.1 software and on this basis a model of the suggested solution for construction of power nozzles as well as nozzles spreading the smoke substance inside the smoking chamber has been prepared. On the basis of simulating models and received feedback we can unequivocally say, that more advantageous conditions of spreading the smoke substance in the smoking chamber had been found. The tests performed in the real conditions with the use of modified power nozzles in comparison to the classical arrangement confirm dependences obtained during simulation.
