  • Gearbox with liquid-solid suspension

    This is a showcase for complex geometry motion (gears are interlocked) and its interaction with a liquid-particle suspension. The fluid "feels" the influence of the particles and the geometry (gears). The particles "feel" the fluid and the geometry. The whole simulation was realized with LIGGGHTS(R) and CFDEM(R)coupling software.
