Abstract

The distribution of inertial particles in turbulent flows is highly nonuniform and is governed by the local dynamics of the turbulent structures of the underlying carrier flow field. In wall-bounded flows, wall roughness strongly affects the turbulent flow field, nevertheless its effects on the particle transport in two-phase turbulent flows has been still poorly investigated. The issue is discussed here by addressing direct numerical simulations of a dilute dispersion of heavy particles in a turbulent channel flow, bounded by irregular two-dimensional rough surfaces, in the one-way coupling regime.
