Modeling Fluid-Particle Systems Using EDEM with CFD


This webinar was presented live on Wednesday, 19th June, 2019

Many industrial processes involve fluid flows laden with solid particles. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a well-established tool to investigate problems involving fluid flows but it presents some limitations when it comes to representing the particle phase. This can be overcome by adding the insight of EDEM – Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material simulation.

EDEM CFD simulation webinar

Coupling EDEM with CFD can realistically simulate the interaction between fluid and particles. EDEM-CFD co-simulation has been used to investigate a wide variety of systems such as fluidization, pneumatic conveying, filtration, solid-liquid mixing, spray coating and many others.

Topics covered:

  • Modeling fluid-solid systems: challenges & limitations of CFD
  • Introducing EDEM
  • Why couple EDEM with CFD
  • Applications examples using EDEM-CFD coupling
  • Coupling EDEM with ANSYS Fluent

Duration: 40 minutes

Presenter: Dr. Richard Wood, DEM-CFD Engineer, EDEM

Who should attend?

This webinar will be of interest to researchers and engineers who need to know more about simulating processes where fluid and particles interact, benefits of EDEM-CFD co-simulation and the use of EDEM with ANSYS Fluent.
