Investigation of Void Fraction Schemes for Use with CFD-DEM Simulations of Fluidized Beds

This paper investigates the spatial resolution of computational fluid dynamics–discrete element method (CFD-DEM) simulations of a bubbling fluidized bed for seven different void fraction schemes.

DEM/CFD Simulations of a Pseudo-2D Fluidized Bed: Comparison with Experiments

The present work investigates the performance of a mesoscopic LaGrangian approach for the prediction of gas–particle flows under the influence of different physical and numerical parameters. To this

Comparative analysis of porosity coarse-graining techniques for discrete element simulations of dense particulate systems

Two novel porosity coarse-graining strategies are proposed including a voxel method where a secondary dense grid of “pixel cells” is implemented adopting a binary logic for the coarse graining and a hybrid method where both analytical formulas and pixels are utilized.



Algorithms in a Robust Hybrid CFD-DEM Solver for Particle-Laden Flows

A momentum-conserving sub-stepping technique is intro- duced into the fluid-particle coupling procedure, so that problems with a wide range of time scales can be solved without resorting to excessively small time steps in the CFD solver.

Comparison of coupled DEM-CFD and SPH-DEM methods in single and multiple particle sedimentation test cases

In this paper, the capability of two major methods for modelling two-phase flow systems, coupled discrete element method and computational fluid dynamics (DEM-CFD) and smoothed particle hydrodynamics

Numerical Simulations of Irregular Particle Transport in Turbulent Flows Using Coupled LBM-DEM

Numerical procedures are introduced for simulations of irregular particle transport in turbulent flows using the coupled lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) and the discrete element method (DEM). The

Influence of void fraction calculation on fidelity of CFD-DEM simulation of gas-solid bubbling fluidized beds

The correct calculation of cell void fraction is pivotal in accurate simulation of two-phase flows using a computational fluid dynamics-discrete element method (CFD-DEM) approach. Two classical
