A coupled DEM-CFD approach is used to describe the spray generation of a two-fluid nozzle and the wetting of single particles. Valuable information to describe particle collisions of wetted particles is generated that are necessary to simulate fluidized bed processes, i.e. agglomeration and granulation.
