Has anyone had experience or seen a reference for CFD modelling of air flow through a bed of wood chips, or similar media?

From what I read, an Eulerian-granular model would work. I would prefer to use Fluent 3D since I have access to the program. As for the meshing, I have Gambit, though making wood chips may be difficult.

BTW, this is a potential project for a Master's Thesis. Thanks!
