Hello,

assume an air flow with many particles in it.
Example: Sand storm

Howto simulate the sand storm with many sand particles of size 1-2mm in it?

Hi there @wmay!

Sounds like an interesting application but the feature is not (yet) available on our platform. My colleague @afischer discussed some details about discrete element method (DEM) particle simulation code in this thread: Particle Mixing - we could think about implementing this feature and enable users like you to simulate particle transport. If that is something you really wish for on SimScale you can put your feature request in this section: Vote For Features.

All the best!
