Granular Fluid Flow Simulations

Many industrial processes involve the transport of granular particles in flowing fluids. Simulation of these granular fluid flows is not trivial because of the different time and lengths scales involved, and because of the different nature of the inter-particle and particle-fluid interactions. DRG is trying to overcome these difficulties by developing a coupled CFD-particle solver […]

Titel: Mesostructure of concrete Stereological analysis and some mechanical implications By Jianjun Zheng On the mesoscale, concrete can be considered as a composite material consisting of aggregate particles and a cement matrix. Performance of the material on the macroscale will be governed by the physical properties of the two phases, as well as by the […]
