Abstract

The transport of a particle-containing liquid through a capillary pore has been studied using a finite element method. Direct calculations of flow fields, drag correction factors, and pressure drops for single particles and short chains of particles were made using the center-line approach. Three cases were considered: a moving sphere in a stationary liquid, a stationary sphere in a moving liquid, and a moving sphere in a moving liquid. The results of the calculations were used to evaluate the maximum achievable flux of a particle-containing fluid through a microporous structure.
