Fully-resolved simulation of particulate flows with particles–fluid heat transfer

By Yayun Wang, Adam J. Sierakowski and Andrea Prosperetti


The PHYSALIS method for the fully-resolved simulation of particulate flows is extended to include heat transfer between the particles and the fluid. The particles are treated in the lumped capacitance approximation. The simulation of several steady and time-dependent situations for which exact solutions or exact balance relations are available illustrates the accuracy and reliability of the method. Some examples including natural convection in the Boussinesq approximation are also described
