DRG presents at OpenFoam Workshop
Delft, 12 March 2020

Today Dynaflow Research Group will give a presentation “The latest developments of DEM coupling in OpenFOAM for industrial applications” at the OpenFOAM Workshop organized by the TU Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (DCSE).

We will present an overview of the CFD consultancy services for different industries to demonstrate the demand on increasing complexity and the increasing demand on DEM simulations. The demand in DEM simulations is converted into a research and development project (PhD) to couple a dedicated DEM solver (HADES) with OpenFOAM. The goal of the project is to generate a tool that allows the application of advanced CFD/DEM coupling for complex engineering applications with increased efficiency and robustness. The current status of this research work and next development steps will be shared.

OpenFOAM is a C++ toolbox for the customization and extension of numerical solvers for continuum mechanics problems, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD). It has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organizations. OpenFOAM has an extensive range of features to solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to acoustics, solid mechanics and electromagnetics.
