Abstract
This work is devoted to the CFD analysis of multiphase flow using Euler-Euler model. In particular, Euler-Euler multiphase model is applied to study numerically the behaviour of gas-solid system and solid-liquid system. The main objective of this work is to validate Euler-Euler multiphase model available by commercial software FLUENT 14.0 against experimental results published by He et. al. The comparison of simulation results showed acceptable agreement in the spout and good agreement in the fountain of a spout bed. We also study the influence of basic parameters on the model performances. Second part of this work is devoted to the CFD analysis of hydraulic fracturing which is also a multiphase flow system where solid and liquid phase is present.
