Modeling erosion in a centrifugal pump in an Eulerian-Lagrangian frame using OpenFOAM®

Erosion induced by solid particle impingement is a very commonwear mechanism in turbomachinery and Computational Fluid Dynamics is one of the most widely used tools for its prediction. In this article, erosion is modeled in one of the channels of a centrifugal pump using OpenFOAM®,which is an Open S...
