Two size of solid particles resuspended in a Newtonian fluid -- by Peter Huang


Angular Slip Velocity and Lift -- by Douglas Ocando


Sedimentation and Fluidization:

Numerical results of the fluidization of 240 circular particles in a 2-D channel by Peter Huang with Partmover code; the experimental results by Runyuan Bai and Peter Huang. The graphs are in postscript:

Fluidization results by Dr. Tsorng-Whay Pan with DML code can be found in his web site. Here are some of the his results:

Sedimentation results by Matt Knepley with parallel PM code can be found in his Computational Fluid Mechanics and under tittle Movies.


Lift off of Solid Particles in a Poiseuille Flow:

Numerical results with Partmover code by Peter Huang. The following figures are the effects of elasticity number on the lift off of one circular particle in a Poiseuille flow of a Maxwell fluid.
