An Efficient Model of Disperse Flows at Low to Moderate Reynolds Numbers

Description :  The purpose of this project is to develop a novel computational model used in the simulation of particle flow in fluids, commonly associated with coastal erosion. In analyzing particle flow, the focus of this project will be on the interactions of complex particles at varied Reynolds numbers. The investigators will (1) develop efficient kernels for modeling, (2) verify the model formulation, (3) increase model output for applications in larger parameters, (4) evaluate large scale particle flows, and (5) apply the parallel algorithm to various platforms. Because this method is more efficient and accurate in its use of Eulerian and Lagrangian approaches, the model will allow for the analysis of particle drag forces at moderate to high Reynolds numbers. As the evaluation of large scale particle flow is applicable in many disciplines of science and engineering, the results of this project may yield major advancements in coastal engineering, computational mathematics, physics, and environmental management, with particular emphasis on coastal protection.
