Abstract

Massively parallel boundary integral element method modeling of particles in low-Reynolds number Newtonian fluid flows M. S. Ingber', S. R. Subia\ & L. A. Mondy^ ^Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of New Mexico, USA ^Thermal/Fluid Computational Engineering Sciences Department ^Multiphase Transport Processes Department, Sandia National Laboratories, New Mexico, USA Abstract The analysis of many complex multiphase fluid flow systems is based on a scale decoupling procedure. At the macroscale, continuum models are used to perform large scale simulations. At the mesoscale, statistical homoge- nization theory is used to derive continuum models based on representative volume elements (RVEs). At the microscale, small scale features such as interfacial properties are analyzed to be incorporated into mesoscale simu- lations. In this research, mesoscopic simulations of hard particles suspended in a Newtonian fluid undergoing nonlinear shear flow are performed using a boundary eleme
