To date, TotalSim has used CFDEM on several projects. We are currently conducting a comparison between CFDEM and STAR-CCM+ predictions for the heat transfer and particle spatial distribution for a single heated air jet fluidizing a bed of cooler particles in a small, well-defined compartment. The strengths and limitations of these software can be found in the following review file.
- Simulation of packing powder catalyst into a microchannel reactor using sonication
- Modeling of a large-scale, continuous peanut roaster
A select set of simple animations of LIGGGHTS and CFDEM simulations are described below and are available from TotalSim.
