    Abstract

    A new numerical approach is presented for simulating the movement of test particles suspended in an incompressible fluid flowing through a porous matrix. This two-phase particle-laden flow is based on the Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible fluid flow and equations of motion for the individual particles in which Stokes drag is dominant. The Immersed Boundary method is applied to incorporate the geometric complexity of the porous medium. A symmetry-preserving finite volume discretization method in combination with a volume penalization method resolves the flow within the porous material. The new Lagrangian particle tracking is such that for mass-less test particles no (numerical) collision with the coarsely represented porous medium occurs at any spatial resolution.
