Comparative study different erosion models in an Eulerian-Lagrangian frame using Open Source software

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Erosion induced by particles striking on a surface is very common in many industrial processes and Computational Fluid Dynamics is one of the most widely used tools for erosion prediction. In this work the most commonly used erosion models are implemented and their review is carried out in OpenFOAM®, an open source CFD package. A comparison of the results yielded evident disparities in the location of the maximum erosion. Once an appropriate test rig is designed and the experimental work carried out, a more detailed assessment of the erosion models will be possible together with a study of the development of erosion with the deformation of the surface, relationship that none of the existing models accounts for.
