Supplementary material for Hydrodynamics in a Randomly Packed Bed with Spherical Particles: A Comparison between PR-CFD Simulations and MRI Experiments
The data and scripts used in the experiments and simulations can be found in ‘SupplementaryMaterial.zip’. Inside the folder ‘/Figures’ the data to plot the figures of the article ‘Hydrodynamics in a Randomly Packed Bed with Spherical Particles: A Comparison between PR-CFD Simulations and MRI Experiments’ are provided.
Inside the folder ‘/Reconstructed packing’ the positions and radii of the particles are provided, which allows to reconstruct the spherical particle packing used in the flow simulations. The raw image data in DICOM format from which these sphere positions and radii are obtained is provided inside the subfolder ‘/Raw data’. Inside the folder ‘/Matlab script for MRI’ the velocity data obtained from the MRI experiments is provided. The MATLAB scripts to calculate the velocity profiles in the article are provided as well. The raw spectrometer files in MRD format from which the velocity data is obtained are provided inside the subfolder ‘/Raw data’. The data in the error analysis section of the paper can be found in the “Error Analysis” folder.
Inside the folder ‘/Matlab script for PR-CFD’ the scripts for calculating the radial velocity and cumulative flow profiles which are reported in the article can be found. Figure 4 and 5 can be generated with the python script inside the folder ‘/Python script for PR-CFD’ from the vtk files which can be provided upon requests.
