Particles in Turbulent Flows

Leonid I. Zaichik, Vladimir M. Alipchenkov, Emmanuil G. Sinaiski

ISBN: 978-3-527-62626-7 December 2008 318 Pages


The only work available to treat the theory of turbulent flow with suspended particles, this book also includes a section on simulation methods, comparing the model results obtained with the PDF method to those obtained with other techniques, such as DNS, LES and RANS.
Written by experienced scientists with background in oil and gas processing, this book is applicable to a wide range of industries -- from the petrol industry and industrial chemistry to food and water processing.
