#### CFD simulations of particle laden flows: Particle transport and separation

Diplomica Verlag 2014; US$ 41.66This study presents the basic models for discrete and continuous particle laden flow simulation. An overview of the two main approaches, the Lagrangian discrete particle model and the Eulerian granular phase model is given. Moreover these two approaches are combined to a hybrid model to use the benefits of the discrete and continuous description. This... more...
