The purpose of this course is to introduce advanced engineering techniques needed to investigate typical analysis problems involved in the coupling of continuous flow models and the motion of discrete solids or particles phase.
Suited for engineers who wish to refine their simulation analysis skills within the particle modeling application area and is appropriate for various industrial applications such as oil and gas applications, pharmaceutical applications, civil engineering, hydraulic engineering etc..
Overview of topics after a general introduction to the basics of the DEM (discrete element method):
- DEM Interaction models
- DEM Particle time scales
- DEM solver settings
- Spherical particle hopper
- Heated composite particle conveyor
- Rotating drum
- Particle auger
- 2-way coupled pipe flow
