• CFD simulations of flow in random packed beds of spheres and cylinders: analysis of the velocity field 

      Dorai, Ferdaous; Rolland, Matthieu; Wachs, Anthony; Marcoux, Manuel; Climent, Eric (SINTEF Proceedings;1, Chapter; Conference object, 2015)
      In this work, we aim to better understand the flow patterns in a random arrangement of particles that might affect local mass transfer and effective reactor performance. Using the DEM code Grains3D, spherical or cylindrical ...
    • Flow past a yawed cylinder of finite length using a fictitious domain method 

      Pierson, Jean-Lou; Hammouti, Abdelkader; Auguste, Franck; Wachs, Anthony (SINTEF Proceedings;2, Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In this work, the flow past a finite-end yawed cylinder is studied. This constitute a first step to understand the motion of freely moving particles. To this aim the Finite Volume / Fictitious Domain (FV/FD) method developed ...
