Three-dimensional Visualization of the Multiphase Submerged Jet Flow Model

S.R. Kildibaeva, E.I. Kharisov
During production of oil products on the deep sea shelf, there is a danger of hydrocarbons being released into the water column in the form of a multiphase jet. The peculiarity of multiphase submerged jet flow determines the rate of water body pollution by oil and depends on the thermal and physical characteristics of the spill and the environment, including the nature of the underwater current. The conducted research has revealed the need for visualization of multiphase submerged jets on the basis of mathematical modeling data. The article considers the possibilities of multiphase submerged jet visualization in the 3D modeling tool Blender3D, the platform for the development of additional functionality, the purpose and functionality of the extension. Visual representation of the jet trajectory interprets temperature and concentration changes in color format. The program allows to display multiphase submerged jet in two modes: boundary and volumetric. The developed program gives an opportunity to expand the representations of the spill according to the initial and boundary conditions, which will reduce the time of its elimination in the long term.
