Background

Highly efficient stand-alone and coupled CFD-DEM computational method

DEM (Discrete Element Method): XPS-DEM (developed by RCPE)

- Computation of granular flows based on particle pairs interactions (Newton’s second law of motion)
- Running on the Graphics Processing Units – GPUs
- Advantage is a massive code parallelization

CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics): AVL FIRE™

- Computation of fluid flow based on Finite-Volume approach (Navier–Stokes equations)
- Running on the Central Processing Units – CPUs
