      Trajectories of particles in rare earth electrolytic cell were simulated. Flow field of electrolyzer was simulated by Euler Method. Particles with different sizes were added into flow field after its convergence. Trajectories of particles were simulated by Lagrange Method. The results of particle trajectories show that particles move to upper surface of electrolyte solution and float in liquid surface. Particles with different sizes have different motion trajectories and different time spent to reach upper surface.
