2 Discrete phase modeling Particle tracking. Steady vs. unsteady. Coupled vs. uncoupled. Advantages and limitations. Time stepping. Discretization. Particle trajectories in a spray dryer Particle trajectories in a cyclone
3 Discrete phase model Trajectories of particles/droplets are computed in a Lagrangian frame. Exchange (couple) heat, mass, and momentum with Eulerian frame gas phase. Discrete phase volume fraction should preferably be less than 10%. Mass loading can be large (+100%). No particle-particle interaction or break up. Turbulent dispersion modeled by: Stochastic tracking. Particle cloud model. Model particle separation, spray drying, liquid fuel or coal combustion, etc. continuous phase flow field calculation particle trajectory calculation update continuous phase source terms

4 DPM theory Trajectory is calculated by integrating the particle force balance equation: typical continuous phase control volume mass, momentum and heat exchange ( 29 p i p p i p i i D p i F g u u F dt du ρ ρ ρ ρ / / ) ( + - + - = drag force is a function of the relative velocity Additional forces: Pressure gradient Thermophoretic Rotating reference frame Brownian motion Saffman lift Other (user defined) Gravity force
5 Coupling between phases One-way coupling: Fluid phase influences particulate phase via drag and turbulence. Particulate phase has no influence on the gas phase. Two-way coupling: Fluid phase influences particulate phase via drag and turbulence. Particulate phase influences fluid phase via source terms of mass, momentum, and energy. Examples include: Inert particle heating and cooling. Droplet evaporation. Droplet boiling. Devolatilization. Surface combustion.

8 volatile fraction flashes to vapor Escape Reflect Trap Particle-wall interaction Particle boundary conditions at walls, inlets, and outlets: For particle reflection, a restitution coefficient e is specified: t t t n n n v v e component: Tangential v v e component: Normal , 1 , 2 , 1 , 2 = =
9 Particle fates “Escaped” trajectories are those that terminate at a flow boundary for which the “escape” condition is set. “Incomplete” trajectories are those that were terminated when the maximum allowed number of time steps was exceeded.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
