Is it possible to simulate Sand in Autodesk CFD?

Like sand running inside a pipe?

 

Thanks

Are you looking to study erosion?

 

What are you goals and could you go into more detail?

Yes Im trying to study erosion inside pipes, with sand transfer machines.

You could try to use our erosion model technique, but you are going to have the limitation that in the erosion model we do not model the particle interaction.  I would assume with something that is designed to move lots of sand that may be of importance.

 

Eitherway, I would give it a shot with the erosion model we have.
