Description

Since the publication of the first edition of Multiphase Flow with Droplets and Particles, there have been significant advances in science and engineering applications of multiphase fluid flow. Maintaining the pedagogical approach that made the first edition so popular, this second edition provides a background in this important area of fluid mechanics to those new to the field and a resource to those actively involved in the design and development of multiphase systems.

See what’s new in the Second Edition:

  • Chapter on the latest developments in carrier-phase turbulence
  • Extended chapter on numerical modeling that includes new formulations for turbulence and Reynolds stress models
  • Review of the fundamental equations and the validity of the traditional "two-fluid" approach
  • Expanded exercises and a solutions manual

A quick look at the table of contents supplies a snapshot of the breadth and depth of coverage found in this completely revised and updated text. Suitable for a first-year graduate (5th year) course as well as a reference for engineers and scientists, the book is clearly written and provides an essential presentation of key topics in the study of gas-particle and gas-droplet flows.
