Table 2 Simulation parameters of the pressure-driven flow scenario, where \(u_{\tau }=\sqrt {\tau _{w}/\rho _{f}}\) is the friction velocity at the fluid/particle interface, U b is the bulk (average) velocity of the fluid, τ w is the shear stress at the fluid/particle interface, ν f the kinematic viscosity, L x , L y , and L z are the spatial extents of the computational domain in the Cartesian space, and h is the grid cell size
