MODELING AND SIMULATION OF RECURRENT GAS- SOLID FLOWS

Besides their industrial significance, gas-solid fluidized bed reactors are fantastic playgrounds to probe our understanding of the dynamics of granular matter. One observes self-organization of characteristic patterns such as bubbles rising through the particle bed. Their fast recurrence has strong implications on the way we can carry out numerical simulations of such systems. Compared to conventional techniques, our approach recurrence CFD runs several orders of magnitude faster.

In this project, we want to investigate the dependence of the recurrence time, i.e. the duration it takes until a pattern reappears, on the domain size and the flow conditions.
