With the objective of separating this biomass into more homogeneous groups of particles, a study was carried out with the aim of predicting the actual separation of sugarcane bagasse.
The researchers performed computation simulations using ANSYS® Fluent® and Rocky DEMsoftware that modeled the separations’ experiments based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and discrete element method (DEM).
The simulations allowed analyses of different air velocities showing when the air velocity was enough to separate intermediate group of particles. The separation was more efficient when the objective was to separate the coarsest particles.
