CFD-DEM with heat transfer

CFDEM®coupling features convective fluid-particle heat transfer.

The examples below illustrate some of the capabilities and the applicability of CFDEM®coupling for heat transfer simulations.
This feature is part of the public release.

Example: heat transfer in packed bed, 4-way coupled CFD-DEM, combined with heat transfer
Heat transfer model includes particle-particle heat conduction and fluid-particle conductive heat transfer.
The animation shows (1) particle temperature (constant), (2) convective fluid-particle heat transfer, (3) fluid temperature, (4) fluid velocity.
