Abstract In this contribution we report on the initial steps in the development of a numerical scheme for flow through packed or suspended spheres. The spheres are semiresolved, meaning that their diameter is smaller than the grid spacing, but their excluded volume is taken into account. Flow in the fluid phase is solved using the volume-averaged equations. Particle motion is solved via Newtons law, taking into account drag force and lubrication forces only. Despite the low resolution of the flow field, the particle trajectories of two spheres colliding in shear flow can be reasonable reproduced
