 August 23, 2004, 14:51 Re: Lagrangian Approach #2 Khurram Guest   Posts: n/a Lagrangian approach is mainly used in solid mechanics, where the grid points "sits" on the material and the grid points move with the material. Eulerian approach is mainly used in fluid mechanics where the grid points are fixed in space and the fluid is moving accross them.

 August 24, 2004, 02:02 Re: Lagrangian Approach #4 Junseok Kim Guest   Posts: n/a In the multi-phase fluid dynamics, Lagrangian approach (immersed boundary method, front tracking method) tracks the interface explicitly. On the other hand Eulerian method (level set method) captures the interface with implicitly defined level set function on the Cartesian coordinates.

 August 25, 2004, 16:48 Re: Lagrangian Approach #5 Khurram Guest   Posts: n/a Hi As Kim mentioned, in Fluid structure interaction problems, we have to employ moving mesh for the fluid. One of the way to handel this problem is Arbitrary Lagrangial-Eulerian formulations. (Though the word arbitrary is misleading!) In ALE formulation the mesh velocity comes into the convection term of the fluid problem. For solid part we still use lagrangian approach. I hope this answers your question!. Dont hesitate to ask again!

 August 29, 2004, 16:04 Re: Lagrangian Approach #7 Khurram Guest   Posts: n/a It depends what you are doing and what are your plans for future. Assuming you have some applied project, then I would say get some CFD book and develop some 2D programs. If you have passed that stage and you are comfortable with CFD and looking to go into multiphysics problems then you have to follow some classical papers, which can give you implementational details.

Presently I am a lecturer at Jaypee Institute of Engineering and Technology. My M.Tech dissertation was Modelling of Spray Dryer. Now I am interested to persue my Doctoral Thesis in in the field of experimental and computational analysis of gas-solid flows. What should I have to do?

 May 4, 2012, 08:01 Dear Biswajit #9 New Member   Saurabh Join Date: Feb 2012 Posts: 4 Rep Power: 5 Hey Biswajit, this is Saurabh. You said that you M.Tech topic was modeling of spray drying process. So have you done CFD modeling. If yes which software have you used. Please tell me as currently I am working on modeling of spray drying process.

I have read and searched several tutorials, but the model that I made didn't work the way I want!. Could you please suggest me some documents which are about spray dryer modelling? I really appreciate any kind of your help.. Thanks in advance.
