The aim of the current project and thereby working field is to investigate agitated particle / fluid systems with focus on fluidized beds in terms of their dynamics and heat transfer. This is achieved by coupling the DEM (discrete element method) with a CFD approach resolving flow around individual particles based on the Lattice-Boltzmann method (LBM). Instead of a surface adjusted mesh, either Immersed Boundary methods (IBM) or interpolated boundary conditions are used on the particle surfaces as boundary conditions. Boundary conditions such as IBMs or interpolated boundary conditions are not yet fully established within coupled simulations involving DEM and LBM. The task is therefore to evaluate accuracy and runtime behavior. The expected results allow to evaluate the applicability of current correlations for momentum and heat transfer and to derive insights for model improvements.
