Particle-laden flows exhibit complex dynamics, resulting from the interplay of turbulence and the ability of the particles to move relatively to the carrying fluid, to settle or to be reentrained. The residual-based variational multiscale method produces good quality simulations in meshes of reasonable size, with much less effort than direct numerical simulations.
