Numerical Simulations of the Equations of Particle Motion in the Gas Flow


Under the assumption of considering the gravity and without gravity, two different acceleration models to describe particle’ motion in the gas flow are formulated, respectively. The corresponding numerical simulations of these models do not only show the trend of the velocity of the particle in different density and particle diameter sizes, but also the relationship between the maximum particle velocity and its diameter size.
