This tutorial uses the discrete element method to simulate a rotating drum. The drum is held at a fixed hot temperature of 600K and particles are initially placed in the drum with a temperature of 300K. As the drum rotates, the particles slide along the surface of the wall and are warmed by conduction. Radiative …
