Abstract

The present study reports detailed statistics for velocity and transfer rates of heavy particles dispersed in turbulent boundary layers. Statistics have been extracted from a homogeneous source of data covering a large target parameter space and are used here to analyze the effects of gravity and lift on particle dispersion and deposition in a systematic way. Datasets were obtained performing Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) of particle-laden turbulent upward/downward flow in a vertical channel. Six values for the particle timescale (the particle Stokes number, St ) ranging three orders of magnitude were considered to analyze the deposition process as the controlling mechanism was shifting from turbulent diffusion to inertia-moderated crossing trajectories. For the particle timescales examined, gravity and lift do not influence the qualitative behavior of particles even though velocity profiles and deposition coefficients are modified in a non-monotonic fashion, reaching an optimum for St ⩾ 15. Physical mechanisms for the different behavior are discussed. Raw data and statistics obtained from the present DNS are made available at http://cfd.cineca.it (mirror site: http://158.110.32.35/download/database ) and can be used to test simple models and closure equations for multiphase RANS and Large Eddy simulations.
