Abstract [en]

We study the inertial migration of finite-size neutrally buoyant spherical particles in dilute and semidilute suspensions in laminar square duct flow. We perform several direct numerical simulations using an immersed boundary method to investigate the effects of the bulk Reynolds number Re-b, particle Reynolds number Re-p, and duct to particle size ratio h/a at different solid volume fractions phi, from very dilute conditions to 20%. We show that the bulk Reynolds number Re-b is the key parameter in inertial migration of particles in dilute suspensions. At low solid volume fraction (phi = 0.4%), low bulk Reynolds number (Re-b = 144), and h/a = 9 particles accumulate at the center of the duct walls. As Re-b is increased, the focusing position moves progressively toward the corners of the duct. At higher volume fractions, phi = 5%, 10%, and 20%, and in wider ducts (h/a = 18) with Re-b = 550, particles are found to migrate away from the duct core toward the walls. In particular, for phi = 5% and 10%, particles accumulate preferentially at the corners. At the highest volume fraction considered, phi = 20%, particles sample all the volume of the duct, with a lower concentration at the duct core. For all cases, we find that particles reside longer times at the corners than at the wall centers. In a duct with lower duct to particle size ratio h/a = 9 (i.e., with larger particles), phi = 5%, and high bulk Reynolds number Re-b = 550, we find a particle concentration pattern similar to that in the ducts with h/a = 9 regardless of the solid volume fraction phi. Instead, for lower Bulk Reynolds number Re-b = 144, h/a = 9, and phi = 5%, a different particle distribution is observed in comparison to a dilute suspension phi = 0.4%. Hence, the volume fraction plays a key role in defining the final distribution of particles in semidilute suspensions at low bulk Reynolds number. The presence of particles induces secondary cross-stream motions in the duct cross section, for all phi. The intensity of these secondary flows depends strongly on particle rotation rate, on the maximum concentration of particles in focusing positions, and on the solid volume fraction. We find that the secondary flow intensity increases with the volume fraction up to phi = 5%. However, beyond phi = 5% excluded-volume effects lead to a strong reduction of cross-stream velocities for Re-b = 550 and h/a = 18. Inhibiting particles from rotating also results in a substantial reduction of the secondary flow intensity and in variations of the exact location of the focusing positions.

Abstract [en]

Dispersed multiphase flows occur in many biological, engineering and geophysical applications. Understanding the behavior of suspensions is a difficult task. In the present work, we numerically study the behavior of suspensions of finite-size rigid particles in different flows. Firstly, the sedimentation of spherical particles larger than the Taylor microscale in sustained homogeneous isotropic turbulence and quiescent fluid is investigated. The results show that the mean settling velocity is lower in an already turbulent flow than in a quiescent fluid. We also investigate the settling in quiescent fluid of oblate particles. We find that at low volume fractions the mean settling speed of the suspension is substantially larger than the terminal speed of an isolated oblate. Suspensions of finite-size spheres are also studied in turbulent channel flow. First, we change the solid volume and mass fractions, and the solid-to-fluid density ratio in an idealized scenario where gravity is neglected. Then we investigate the effects of polydispersity. It is found that the statistics are substantially altered by changes in volume fraction. We then consider suspensions of solid spheres in turbulent duct flows. We see that particles accumulate mostly at the corners or at the core depending on the volume fraction. Secondary motions are enhanced by increasing the volume fraction, until excluded volume effects are so strong that the turbulence activity is reduced. The inertial migration of spheres in laminar square duct flows is also investigated. We consider semi-dilute suspensions at different bulk Reynolds numbers and duct-to-particle size ratios. The highest particle concentration is found around the focusing points, except at very large volume fractions. Finally we study the rheology of confined dense suspensions of spheres in simple shear flow. We focus on the weakly inertial regime and show that the effective viscosity varies non-monotonically with increasing confinement.
