AbstractDEM-VOF simulations of particle suspension dynamics in unbaffled liquid-solid stirred tanks with free surface were performed in conjunction with RSM turbulence model. The two-way coupling of particle and fluid was achieved by solving Gidaspow's drag force, non-drag force and source term in the momentum equation. The calculation of particle volume in the fluid was realized by the porous model. Particle-particle and particle-wall interactions were also considered. A four-blade 45 degrees pitched blade turbine was used, and the sliding-grid has been adopted to simulate impeller rotating. DEM-VOF coupling method was validated by theories and experiments. The effects of tank geometries, impeller rotating speed, particle density, diameter and volume fraction on the free surface vortex, flow patterns and particle suspension dynamics were investigated by DEM-VOF method for the first time. Results indicate that the particle-fluid interaction has important effects on the flow field and particle distribution. The modifications of tank geometries substantially influence flow patterns and particle suspension behaviors. The profiled bottom could eliminate sharp flow diversions completely. It can give rise to off-bottom suspension of particles and an elimination of the surface vortex due to particle-fluid interaction for large solid holdup and large particle diameter. Furthermore, the base of the profiled bottom tank was optimized. The reported research data has important guiding significance for the design of stirred tanks.
