I want to model non-spherical particles in water flow in square channel.
I am trying to extend the program of “particles in cone” to my desired program but have some questions:
1- Is palabos able to model non-spherical particles?
2- I cannot find information regarding particles density and size and concentration in “particles in cone” program.
3- how can I use square geometry instead of cone without using triangle set?
4- what is the difference between particles modeling in “particles in cone” and “particles in tube” programs?
5-In the program of “external flow around obstacle” particles are also used but it is mentioned that particles are just used for visualization. what does this mean? it means that particles collisions with each other and fluid is not considered?
6- which model is used for particles modeling in “particles in cone”? Ladd, … or etc.
any helpful information regarding particles modeling in palabos in highly appreciated.
Thank you in advance
