Fundamentals of Dispersed Multiphase Flows


, University of Florida
Published 2024


Dispersed multiphase flows are at the heart of many geophysical, environmental, industrial, and energy applications. Volcanic eruptions, rain formation, powder snow avalanches, sediment transport, and dust storms are some classic examples from the environment, while industrial applications include fluidized beds, slurry transport, fuel injection, cyclone separators, and plasma coating, to name a few. Although each application is unique, they share significant commonalities in the underlying dispersed multiphase-flow physics that govern their dynamics. This book takes a rigorous approach to explaining…
