Description

CFDEM is an open source package for to simulate fluid-granular systems.  In the implemented coupled CFD-DEM system solver, the motion of the particles is resolved by means of Discrete Element Method (DEM), and for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used for the fluid flow.  In CFDEM, OpenFOAM® package is used for solving fluid flow, and LIGGGHTS package for granular material modeling.
