Flow through porous lter plate is studied in order to get an understanding
of the parameters, thickness and number of rids, inuencing the performance
of lter. As the alumina is the material used to built-up the lter, and the
lter is the core part which aects the performance of the whole lter-pump
system obviously. A deeper understanding of the parameter's inuence can
help us work well enough when we design a lter or the whole lter pump.
The LMH of dierent lter with dierent parameters are calculated out by
hand calculation and the strength of every module is also calculated out
from ANSYS simulation. At the end out this thesis, there is a comparison
between the hand calculation and CFD simulation. And there is also a com-
parison with the solid sample, it demonstrated that eective and reasonable
creating cavity or channel inside of the porous plate is an important method
to increase the permeat.
