Holonic modeling of particle interaction for computational fluid dynamics
This paper presents a holonic modeling approach to simulate the behavior of fluid– particle interaction for computational fluid dynamics. Holonic modeling is
employed to model the dynamics of a fluid. A software proof-of-concept application is presented to simulate the fluid flow. The particle–fluid interaction is modeled by means of holons, intelligent software entities that handle every particle behavior in the simulation considering local information, such as forces, drag force, and
gravitation. The new approach proposes a model that requires low computational resources compared to analytical solutions and might provide solutions in specific scenarios with complex boundary conditions.
