Strömungssimulation der Druckwelle einer Staubexplosion

Flow simulation of the shock wave of a dust explosion

Dust explosions are caused by rapid combustion processes in a cloud of fine dust particles. A high heat release occurs, which can cause the gas to spread explosively. The potential danger of dust explosions exists in all industrial plants and rooms in which dust clouds occur and there is the possibility that the particle-air mixture…
