Research Focus

CFD-DEM study of complex particle fluid flows


Since both CFD and DEM are established according to Newton's law, they belong to the "first-principle" model and can be used universally to simulate different particle-fluid systems.


Solid particles (such as PM2.5, sand, high-energy micro-nano metal powders and pills) are the second largest substances processed by humans after water. Particles generally do not exist in a vacuum, but form a particle-fluid system with fluids such as air, water, and oil. 50% of anything produced in a modern industrial society are related to particle-fluid systems. Industries closely related to particle-fluid systems include geotechnical, materials, aerospace, energy and environmental protection, chemicals, machinery, cement, metallurgy, minerals, food, medicine, marine engineering and 3D printing. Typical particle-fluid systems include sand and dust storms, grouting, solid rocket high-energy metal powder combustion, coal combustion, heavy oil catalytic cracking, drug powder into the lungs, and metal powder 3D printing systems with inert gas.
