A fictitious domain approach to the direct numerical simulation of incompressible viscous flow past moving rigid bodies: application to particulate flow.

*(English)*Zbl 1047.76097Summary: We discuss a methodology that allows the direct numerical simulation of incompressible viscous fluid flow past moving rigid bodies. The simulation methods rest essentially on the combination of: (a) Lagrange-multiplier-based fictitious domain methods which allow the fluid flow computations to be done in a fixed flow region; (b) finite element approximations of Navier-Stokes equations occurring in the global model; (c) time discretizations by operator splitting schemes in order to treat optimally the various operators present in the model. The above methodology is particularly well suited to the direct numerical simulation of particulate flow, such as the flow of mixtures of rigid solid particles and incompressible viscous fluids, possibly non-Newtonian. We conclude this article with results of various numerical experiments, including the simulation of store separation for rigid airfoils and of sedimentation and fluidization phenomena in two and three dimensions.
