Written by experienced practitioners and teachers, this concise and comprehensive treatment on particulate flow covers both the theory as well as applications and examples from the oil and chemical industry.
Following a look at the basic concepts of probability theory, the authors goe on to examine the elements of microhydrodynamics, Brownian motion, and real liquids in turbulent flow.
Of interest for lecturers in physics, theoretical physicists and chemists, as well as chemical engineers.
