Modélisation des écoulements fluide multiphasiques avec une approche SPH

Abstract : Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is a Lagrangian gridless method developed initially to simulate astrophysical phenomena, and since it has been known for a large number of applications, especially for fluid flow simulations. Contrary to the grid-based method, the SPH method can handle free surface and interfacial fluid flow simulation including large deformations naturally and without the need for any specific treatment. In this thesis a SPH modeling of multiphase fluid flows has been achieved with consideration of different complexities ( free surface and interfacial fluid flows) and natures (simulation of fluids, soil and both in interactions). A consistent weakly compressible SPH model (WCSPH) has been proposed to simulate interfacial multiphase fluid flows with more than two fluid phases. This model includes a new expression of the surface tension force using a first order consistency SPH operator. A modification to the well known generalized wall boundary condition have been brought in order to be applied to multiphase fluid flow with large density and viscosity ratios. A new pressure-based constitutive law named RBMC-αμ (Regularized Bingham Mohr Coulomb with αμ is free parameter) has been developed in this thesis. This model can simulate fluids (Newtonian, Binghamton), soils (cohesive, frictional) and both in interactions. Because the previous model is pressure sensitive, an extension of δ-SPH diffusive term has been proposed for multiphase fluid flows to overcome the hight frequency pressure oscillations due to the determination of pressure from an equation of state. The validation and application of the developed models have been shown in this thesis through several test-cases of increasing difficulty.
