Input data: a cylindrical silo loaded with wood chips, air cannons with compressed air.

What Do I need: to simulate the air flow (shot) in wood chips and analyse (evaluate) how it will enhance the flow of the considered bulk material.

The question: How to simulate wood chips that are going to be subjected by compressed air flow into the silo?


Thank you for your time, 

Best wishes.


P.S. The only one example correspanding to my problem that I found, but video shows only the result.

What is the mass loading of the wood chip? Volume loading?
