Hybrid Particle Laden Flow Modelling - A joint domain combination of Eulerian solid phase and Lagrangian discrete particle simulations
Sprache des Titels:
The numerical hybrid model EUgran+ [Pirker et al., 2010], which is an Eulerian-Eulerian granular phase model extended with models from the
Eulerian-Lagrangian model for dense rapid particulate flows, is modified to account for poly-dispersed particle diameter distributions. These modifications include the implementation of
I) a new poly-dispersed drag law and of II) new particle boundary conditions distinguishing between sliding and non-sliding particle-wall collisions and III) a new implementation of the
population balance equation in the agglomeration model using the Eulerian-Lagrangian approach, referred to as Bus-stop model. Further, the applicability of the EUgran+ model is extended
to cover dilute to dense poly-disperse particulate flows.
Furthermore, this provides an improvement in the numerical simulation of dust separation and the formation of particle strands in industrial scale cyclones. In this thesis, the
EUgran+Poly model is validated at 3 specific cases with different mass loadings: I) poly-dispersed particle conveying in a square pipe with a 90 degree bend at low mass loading (L = 0:00206);
II) a particle conveying case in a rectangular pipe with a double-loop at high mass loading (L = 1:5); III) in a vertical pipe the implementation of the agglomeration model is validated.
To show the applicability of the presented models a simulation of an industrial cyclone in experimental scale is presented. The validation and application shows that considering a
poly-disperse Eulerian-Eulerian granular phase improves the accordance of the simulation results with measurements significantly. Finally, the hybrid model is a good compromise for a
computational efficient simulation of particulate transport and separation with different mass loading regimes.
