Abstract(s)[Extrat] Multiphase flows are relevant in several industrial processes, thus the availability of accurate numerical modeling tools, able to support the design of products and processes, is of much significance. OpenFOAM version 2.3.x comprises a multiphase flow solver able to couple Eulerian and Lagrangian phases using the discrete particles method (DPM), the DPMFoam. In this work the DPMFoam solver is assessed by comparing its predictions with analytical results and experimental and simulated data available in the literature. They are results from Goldschmidt’s [1] and Hoomans’s [2] theses and the analytical Ergun equation. The goal was to define accuracy and performance of DPMFoam in general scientific or commercial applications. Obtained results demonstrate a good agreement with the reference simulation data and is within reasonable deviations from the experimental values. (...)
