We implemented fully resolved (!) CFD-DEM coupling on the GPU, by coupling RHOXYZ and BLAZE-DEM. This is first of its kind: natural connection between polyhedra DEM and implicit Lagrangian CFD.
Some interesting facts:
– melting of solid particles into fluid
– fully resolved coupling, physically most accurate
– non-Newtonian flow, free surface flow
– fully GPU driven, lightning fast
– complex motions and/or deformation
– coupled with BLAZE-DEM by Prof. Nicolin Govender
