The importance of using the lift force and wall-corrections of the drag coefficient for modeling the motion of solid particles in a fully-developed channel flow is investigated by means of direct numerical simulation (DNS). The turbulent channel flow is computed at a Reynolds number based on the wall-shear velocity and channel half-width of 185. Contrary to most of the numerical simulations, we consider in the present study a lift force formulation that accounts for the weak and strong shear as well as for the wall effects (hereinafter referred to as optimum lift force), and the wall-corrections of the drag force. The DNS results show that the optimum lift force and the wall-corrections of the drag together have little influence on most of the statistics (particle concentration, mean velocities, and mean relative and drift velocities), even in the near wall region.
