Performer: Tuskegee University
Project No: FE0007520
Figure 1. (a) A slice of a simulated velocity field in the symmetry plane when a 15 mm spherical particle in silicon oil touches the bottom of the container [Yu, Zhao and L-S Fan, Lattice Boltzmann method for simulating particle-fluid interactions, Particulogy, vol 8, 2010, pp. 539-543]. (b) Particle velocity simulated by the IB-LBM and LBM-AMR (Adaptive Mesh Refinement) approaches. The experimental data are taken from case E3 in [Cate, A. ten, C.H Nieuwstad, J.J. Derksen, and Akker H.E.A. van den, Particle imaging velocimetry experiments and lattice-Boltzmann simulations on a single sphere settling under gravity.
