Abstract.: In order to get insight into the wet agglomeration process, we numerically investigate the growth of a single granule inside a dense flow of an initially homogeneous distribution of wet and dry particles. The simulations are performed by means of the discrete element method and the binding liquid is assumed to be transported by the wet particles, which interact via capillary and viscous force laws. The granule size is found to be an exponential function of time, reflecting the conservation of the amount of liquid and the decrease of the number of available wet particles inside the flow during agglomeration. We analyze this behavior in terms of the accretion and erosion rates of wet particles for a range of different values of material parameters such as mean particle size, size polydispersity, friction coefficient and liquid viscosity. In particular, we propose a phase diagram of the granule growth as a function of the mean primary particle diameter and particle size span, which separates the parametric domain in which the granule grows from the domain in which the granule does not survive.
