Modeling of turbulence attenuation in particle- or droplet-laden flows

View File

Particle-or droplet-laden turbulent flows play a role in many industrial and environmental applications like spray combustion or cloud formation. For numerical simulations of such flows, RANS-based simulation models are applicable. In this work [7], we outline a new model that accurately reproduces particle-induced attenuation of fluid-phase turbulence. The new model is based on a Lagrangian description for the particle-phase, which provides a closure model for particle-phase terms in the fluid-phase RANS and Reynolds stress equations. Moreover, it accounts for preferential concentration effects that become important for Stokes numbers around 1. The model performance is validated for a range of different particle Stokes numbers and particle mass loadings.
