A computational method for the simulation of systems where close coupling exists between a flowing fluid and mobile or stationary cohesive particles is presented in this work. The method is based on the solution of particle motion dynamics by the Discrete Element Method (DEM) coupled with the flow field calculation by a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) approach. The method is demonstrated on two examples inspired by the problem of sand production in oil exploration, namely the stability of a… CONTINUE READING
