Saffman/ Lift Force in Pipe
Join Date: Apr 2011

I'm trying to implement lift force in a slurry flow in a pipe with a custom code.
I'm reading about the Saffman lift force and it seems that there are a lot of different corrections or interpreations on this force.
Does anyone know what is the most adequate/used formula for solid-liquid flows??
I'm using this from the FLUENT manual.
And I have some doubts about this one.
The last term is the curl if I'm not mistaken and the previous term is a vector difference, for x, y and z.
Than we will have an external product between two vectors.
I'm having some doubts on how to implement it in 2D as a volume force.
Do I split the equation in X and Y terms? How do I go about this?
Thanks for your help.
