A Mesh-Free Particle Method for Simulation of Mobile-Bed Behavior Induced by Dam Break
AbstractThe mesh-free particle method is the latest method in the computational fluid dynamics field. It has become well-known due to its application for simulating any kind of interface deformation and fragmentation, including large disturbance on the interface. In this study, the moving particle semi-implicit (MPS) method has been developed for multi-phase to simulate mobile (erodible)-bed under violent flows such as a dam break. In order to develop the MPS method, multi-phase particle interaction models including self-buoyancy and surface tension models were employed. All of the newly adopted particle interaction models were modified by the author. When fluids collide with the soil bed, the erodible bed can be liquefied. In this regard, polyethylene oxide (PEO) solution was used as a mobile bed. The water column captured by the gate collapsed after opening the gate, and it then propagated over a mobile bed. The mobile bed has various thicknesses based on corresponding experiments. Moreover, the dam break on an inclined tank was also simulated to investigate the swash uprush problem. The maximum velocity and height of mixed flows were measured at a certain point, which aligned with the corresponding experiment. All of the simulation results were compared with those obtained from some experimental work. View Full-Text
