The extension of Kynch’s kinematical theory of ideal suspensions to polydisperse suspensions of spheres leads to a nonlinear system of conservation laws for the volumetric concentration of each species. In this work, we consider particle species different in sizes and densities, including the buoyant case. We show that modern shock-capturing numerical schemes for the solution of systems of conservation laws can be employed as an efficient tool for the simulation of the settling and separation… CONTINUE READING
