Transport de particules

Transport de particules

L’équipe appartient au réseau européen particle-based-cloud-modelling, et participe au projet IDEXLyon Breakthrough "Turbullet", qui réunit 6 laboratoires Lyonnais (physique, mécanique, mathématique, astro et géophysique).

Les approches concernant le mélange et la dispersion étant multiples, nous choisissons de nous concentrer sur des questions précises allant du point de vue lagrangien fondamental à la dispersion de particules réelles, éventuellement des bulles, des gouttelettes, ou plus généralement des écoulements diphasiques. On notera également des travaux récents sur les particules actives (en écoulements laminaires ou turbulents).

Voici par exemple deux questions auxquelles nous tentons de répondre :
particules anisotropes :
nous étudions des objets de géométrie sphéroïdale, dans la continuité de nos travaux. L’originalité de l’approche réside dans la prise en compte des corrections inertielles (dues à l’inertie du fluide) dans les équations du mouvement de translation et de rotation des objets.
L’étude a pour objectif l’application à la microphysique des nuages, les particules sphéroïdales modélisant des cristaux de glace.
Effet de la turbulence sur la sédimentation de particules sphériques de petite taille :
Contrairement à la vaste majorité des travaux récents sur le sujet, nous considérerons des objets dont le rapport de densité avec celui du fluide porteur est modéré. Des équations du mouvement plus élaborées, contenant notamment les forces de masse ajoutée et d’histoire, seront utilisées dans ce but.
