'Particle flow analysis of a cyclone separator' simulation project by gholami


I created a new simulation project called 'Particle flow analysis of a cyclone separator':

This project shows how to simulate a particle fluid flow through a cyclone separator.

More of my public projects can be found here.


The mesh was prepared locally and directly uploaded to the platform. The simulation was set up using the discrete phase model applying a k-Eqn LES turbulence model.

The particles within the flow were modeled applying a four-way coupling method with 1000 kg/m^3 particle density. The particles

The simulation is carried out on a 32 core machine and took around 10 hours. An animation of the results is shown this YouTube video.
