Dear Chris,

the coupling of openlb and DEM does not exclude the usage of partially saturated methods (PSM) as proposed by [1]. In fact, in [2] we compared different fluid-solid interface approaches to study the Galilean invariance for vortex-induced vibrations with OpenLB including different PSM approaches. A collision, based on a weighting of the collision operators according to [1], can be included into your code by using the PSMBGKdynamics in the latest release of OpenLB (v1.3 – 1).

Best regards,
Nicolas
