Coupling non-local rheology and volume of fluid (VOF) method: a finite volume method (FVM) implementation

Published online: 7 June 2021
Additional to a behavior switching between solid-like and liquid-like, dense granular flows also present propagating grain size-dependent effects also called non-local effects. Such behaviors cannot be efficiently modeled by standard rheologies such as µ(I)-rheology but have to be dealt with advanced non-local models. Unfortunately, these models are still new and cannot be used easily nor be used for various configurations. We propose in this work a FVM implementation of the recently popular NGF model coupled with the VOF method in order to both make non-local modeling more accessible to everyone and suitable not only for single-phase flows but also for two-phase flows. The proposed implementation has the advantage to be extremely straightforward and to only require a supplementary stabilization loop compared to the theoretical equations. We then applied our new framework to both single and two-phase flows for validation.
