In a collaborative AMIRA project, P581, a CFD model of the bed rheology in a rotary kiln has been developed. Details of the rheology were obtained from DEM simulation and implemented in the CFD model. The animation shows the predicted bed surface in a rotary kiln with the color indicating the axial bed velocity.
If the animation does not load or is of poor quality, try running this compiled Smacker file: d4.exe (1.1MB).
Note that this is an executable file, and should be suitable for all PCs running Win95 or later. For more information about Smacker and its compiled executables, please follow this link.
