Calculation of stress tensor on wall particle (turbulence)

HI

To resolve the turbulent viscous term, we need to compute tau_a and tau_b where tau is the stress tensor.

The computation above seems reasonable if a and b are fluids.

However, if a fluid particle "a" interacts with a solid particle "b", may I know how dualsphysics computes tau_b?

Can someone please enlighten?
Thanks.

  • Hey,

    at the moment, exactly the same way, since one of the assumptions of the current boundary conditions is that it is essentially fluid, that simply doesn't obey momentum conservation and has a fixed velocity. This is clearly a strech, but there are many many problems with boundaries and sph, turbulence is a minor one at this point.

    Cheers
