Sprache des Tagungstitel:
In this paper the authors present a resolved method for the simulation of the interaction of immersed bodies and the surrounding fluid. While the motion of the fluid is modelled with a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver based on OpenFOAM®, the trajectories of the bodies are computed with the discrete element method (DEM) code LIGGGHTS. The link between these two Open Source software packages is established by CFDEMcoupling, a general CFD-DEM coupling toolbox that provides a framework for all kinds of applications. Previous publications by the authors show correctness, feasibility and applicability of the involved components.
