Author: Claas BierwischThe possibility of coupling discrete element method (DEM) and finite element analysis (FEA) simulations is particularly attractive in order to model contact between granular matter and soft bodies.
The coupling takes place at the ... more

Author: Claas BierwischErosive wear occurs in many processes involving particles which hit a wall with large relative velocities. Even though the material removal for each impact is very small the collective damage is often significant. The video displa ... more
Author: Christian NuttoThe video shows a thoothbrush filament moving through a numerical model of a toothpaste enriched with abrasive particles. At the bottom of the simulation domain, an idealistic model of enamel is implemented. It was studied how the ... more
Author: Thomas BreinlingerThis video shows the drying of a silver ink micro droplet on a solid substrates. The simulation is carried out using the discrete element method (DEM) which is combined with an analytic solution of the fluid motion via one-way-cou ... more

Author: Thomas BreinlingerSpray drying is a process used to transform fine primary powder into larger granules which provide better characteristics (e.g. flowability, pressability etc.). Our simulations focus on the evolution of the microstructure of the i ... more

Author: Claas BierwischThe movie shows a fluid in a rigid pipe which is connected to a hose of rubber-like material. A piston moves towards the left through the pipe thereby pushing the fluid out of the hose. Gravity is accelerating the fluid downwards. ... more
