Two-phase Taylor Couette flow is simulated using the Euler-Lagrange approach, where the dispersed phase is treated as point particles with effective forces such as drag, lift, added mass and buoyancy acting on them. Two-way coupling is implemented between the carrier and the dispersed phase allowing us to study the interaction between the point like particles and the large scale flow structure in the carrier phase. Light buoyant particles are observed to be very effective in disrupting the coherent Taylor rolls, thus reducing the overall dissipation in the system and the overall driving torque.
