The problem of the consolidation of an aerated fine powder under gravity is considered. The industrial relevance of the problem is discussed and a mathematical model is introduced. The mathematical structure is that of a coupled system for three unknowns, pressure, stress, and height of the powder in the (axisymmetric) bunker containing it. The system itself consists of a parabolic PDE, an ODE, and an integral equation determining a free boundary corresponding to the height of the powder… Expand

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for fluidization is reaching maturity (Roco, 1998). It has become common practice to compare time-averaged solid velocities and concentrations to measurements of… Expand

The subject of this book is the solution of stiff differential equations and of differential-algebraic systems (differential equations with constraints). The book is divided into four chapters. The… Expand

SummaryThe paper analyzes one-step methods for differential-algebraic equations (DAE) in terms of convergence order. In view of extrapolation methods, certain perturbed asymptotic expansions are… Expand
