  Separation of suspended droplets in a fluid flow has been a great concern for scientists and technologists. In the current study, the effect of the surface roughness on flow field and the performance of a gas-oil cyclone is studied numerically. The droplets and the turbulent airflow inside the cyclone ...  Read More

  The effect of adding extra inlet channels on the operation of the Stairmand Cyclone has been investigated numerically. The Reynolds stress model (RSM) and Eulerian-Lagrangian method were used to investigate the complex turbulent flow and cyclone performance. The impacts of one-way coupling and two-way ...  Read More
