The wear process known as erosion occurs when discrete particles strike a surface. The process causes surface damage, leading to material loss and mechanical degradation, potentially causing serious problems and economic loss. Material degradation is often unavoidable but the ability to model the erosion process allows engineers to improve component/system design through better material selection and the use of erosion reducing measures. In this report, the use of CFD for modelling erosion is reviewed. Using CFD, the movement of solid particles within a gas or liquid can be studied. Most detail is provided for the gas/solid particle combinations, although information on the liquid/solid particle combination is also included.
