ABSTRACT
In Aluminium manufacturing the Soderberg pot is widely used. The study explains about the bubble motion in cryolite liquid in a Soderberg pot anode face using comprehensive VOF multiphase model in FLUENT, under the action of gravitation. The distribution of bubbles introduced under the anodes of an aluminum reduction cell at the initial time has fixed size. 2D simulation results are reported for four cases with different initial conditions for the bubbles, physics and geometries.
