The development of an open-source code named as multiphase flow with interphase eXchange (MFIX), for the simulation of heavily-loaded, reactive gas/particle flows was described. The intended application of the code is for dilute to dense gas-solid flows with chemical reactions and heat transfer. The code is scheduled to incorporate both Eulerian-Eulerian and Eulerian-Lagrangian representations of particle motion and operate within a framework to achieve scalable performance on large scale parallel computing platforms. The current version of the code is expected to enable scientists to focus on model and algorithm development and validation, rather than on code development and debugging.
