Development of a Two-Fluid Drag Law for Clustered Particles using Direct Numerical Simulation and Validation through Experiments

Performer: Florida International University

Project No: FE0007260

Figure 2. Contours of kinetic energy in fluctuating gas-phase motions (normalized by the square of the mean slip velocity) from particle-resolved direct numerical simulation (Subramaniam group, Iowa State University). The solid volume fraction is 5 percent and Reynolds number based on mean slip velocity and particle diameter is 50.
