    • Outlines examples of multiphase flows in industrial and energy conversion processes to illustrate the wide application of this technology
    • Introduces definitions of dispersed phase flows, which apply specifically to particle or droplet flows
    • Addresses particle-fluid interaction, particle-particle interaction, particle-wall interaction, and the application of this information in the development of numerical models.
    • Revisits the continuum concept applied to multiphase flows
    • Highlights current methods for modeling turbulence in dispersed phase flows
    • Presents the fundamental ideas underlying the application of DNS and LES to dispersed phase flows
    • Examines several of the most common measurement techniques, their capabilities, and the limitations of their applications

    A solutions manual is available upon qualifying course adoption.


    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.


    We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
