Statistical Eulerian Diffusion Approach of Four-Way-Coupled Multiphase Systems
Volume-fraction weighted and Reynolds averaged momentum transport equations are solved in an Euler/Euler approach to simulate numerically the turbulent, dispersed two- phase °ow in a two-dimensional channel and a three-dimensional conic di®user °ow. Particular attention is given to the modelling of turbulent di®usion and particle wall interaction, assuming local equilibrium but introducing individual terms for particle/°uid drag interaction, particle collisions and trajectory crossings. These in°uences have been quanti¯ed in terms of partial viscosities, a restitution power and a turbulence structure parameter. Boussinesq approxima- tions have been used for each phase and their interaction, whose formulation was provided in the framework of the eddy-viscosity modelling concept.
