Fictitious domain methods for particulate flow in two and three dimensions

R.Glowinski, T.-W. Pan, and D.D. Joseph


In this article we discuss a methodology allowing the direct numerical simulation of the flow of mixtures of rigid solid particles and incompressible viscous fluids, possibly non-Newtonian. The simulation methods rest essentially on the combination of:

We conclude this article by the presentation of the results of various numerical experiments including the simulation of sedimentation and fluidization phenomena in two and three dimensions.
