You will learn about the special boundary conditions that can be used to model unresolved physical phenomena or thin immersed structures. Particle tracing can be used to simulate flows of dilute suspensions whereas continuum multiphase flow models are needed for higher volume fractions, e.g. the mixture model or Euler-Euler model for dispersed multiphase flow and the level-set model or phase-field model for separated multiphase flow. The most common multiphysics couplings will also be addressed. This is followed by a presentation of the various turbulence models and their applicability. The session will be concluded with a few words about the solvers with special focus on the new AMG (Aggregated Multi Grid) solver.
