Simulation of Powders

      Can anyone let me know how to proceed when we deal with the simulations involving powders! To be specific how to model if a powder has specific temperature and it is heated inside the chamber ?


       


      Thanks

      Several approaches might be possible from just using scalar to Eulerian Multiphase models and Lagrangan approaches.
      Check this:

      That's really helpful ! Thanks for that can you tell if we can find any option such as powder form (like solids) in the simulation  !!

      In Fluent partocles are assumed ro be spgerical and point masses withiut volume. To account for volume blockage one need an Eulerian or Hybdrid approach. Look after DDPM or Euler Granular in the help.
