Gas-particle two-phase flow is a very important consideration in designing various machines. Although a great deal of theoretical, experimental, and numerical research has been carried out, particle motion in a supersonic flow has not been sufficiently clarified. Hence, in order to clarify the interactions between flow and particles, the authors consider the characteristics of particle motion, especially at high temperatures. In the present study, the flow of a gas with a diluted particle load is to be simulated in a conventional converging-diverging supersonic nozzle. The turbulent gas flow in the nozzle is computed with the finite difference and RANS methods. The particle motion is simulated in a Lagrangian manner. In addition, taking into account the light particle loading, a weak coupling method is used. Through this investigation, we show that the particle velocity increases monotonically from the nozzle throat to the outlet. And it is shown that particles can be accelerated to higher velocities in helium than in nitrogen, and smaller particles tend to attain higher speed and lower static temperature.
