Modeling Fluid-Particle Systems Using EDEM with CFD
This webinar was last presented live on Wednesday, 12th December, 2018
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.
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.
- Modeling fluid-solid systems: challenges & limitations of CFD

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.
