• Effect of lift force on dense gas‐fluidized beds of non‐spherical particles 

      Mema, Ivan; Mahajan, Vinay V.; Fitzgerald, Barry W.; Kuipers, Hans; Padding, Johan T. (SINTEF Proceedings;2, Chapter; Conference object, 2017)
      In industry we encounter many processes that rely on equipment in which particles are suspended by a gas flow, such as pneumatic conveyors, CFB gasifiers, combustors and fluidized bed reactors. In numerical models of these ...
    • Novel efficient hybrid‐DEM collision integration scheme 

      Buist, Kay A.; Seelen, Luuk J.H.; Deen, Niels G.; Padding, Johan T.; Kuipers, Hans J.A.M. (SINTEF Proceedings;2, Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      A hybrid collision integration scheme is introduced, benefiting from the efficient handling of binary collisions in the hard sphere scheme and the robust time scaling of the soft sphere scheme. In typical dynamic dense ...
    • Stochastic DSMC model for large scale dense bubbly flows 

      Kamath, Satish; Padding, Johan T.; Buist, Kay A.; Kuipers, J.A.M. (SINTEF Proceedings;2, Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Bubble columns are widely used in the chemical industry because of their simple design and high efficiency. The scale-up of these kinds of columns is challenging and time-consuming. Since high throughput is targeted, they ...
