Simulation of Particle Laden Flows Using Particle Methods

J. H. Walther, S.-S. Lee, P. Koumoutsakos, Phys. Fluids, 12(9), 2000


We present simulations of an initially spherical suspension of solid particles falling due to gravity in a viscous incompressible fluid. The numerical simulations are performed using three-dimensional viscous, vortex methods with a two-way coupling between the fluid and the particles.
