Dynamische Wechselwirkungen von Partikeln und Tropfen mit strukturierten Bauteiloberflächen

Contact: Fabian Krull

Funding: DFG - A08 im SFB 926 - Förderpeiode 2

During the production, processing and transport of particulate materials, dynamic interactions often take place between the component surface and surrounding media, such as particles and droplets. Adhesion processes can lead to blocking of the component surfaces. These processes, as well as abrasion, are significantly influenced by processes on the microscale in the contact of particles or droplets with component surfaces. For a better understanding of the influence of the morphology of the component surfaces, the dynamic interactions of single particles and droplets with structured surfaces are investigated experimentally. Furthermore, these influences are described with mathematical models and simulated with the discrete element method (DEM) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
