Reply To: HBLM for stokes drag force simulation


Dear Zhangshi,

could you explain what your setup is? When floating between two fludis stokes maybe does not hold.
The Stokes drag force is not directly applied in HLBM, but the overall hydrodynamic forces are calculated, which can give the Stokes drag force if flow regieme and geometry are chosen according to the Stokes assumptions.
What do you mean by Euler-Euler? HLBM consideres particles as distinct non-deformable objects, whereas in the Euler-Euler example case the particles are depicted by an advection-diffusion equation, describing the particles as density distribution instead of single objects. Therefore basic asumptions are differnt in this case.

Best regards
