Transport Phenomena in Multiphase Systems

Authors: Arastoopour, Hamid, Gidaspow, Dimitri, Lyczkowski, Robert W

  •  Provides a lucid explanation of how the multiphase transport equations arise, including multiphase kinetic theory;
  • Describes gas-liquid and gas-solid flows including fluidized bed systems;
  • Explains applications to several chemical and energy conversion processes based on fluidized bed systems, including blood flow analysis, carbon dioxide (CO2) capture, pharmaceutical production, volcanic eruptions, polymerization process and wind turbine performance.

About this Textbook

This volume fills the need for a textbook presenting basic governing and constitutive equations, followed by several engineering problems on multiphase flow and transport that are not provided in current advanced texts, monographs, or handbooks. The unique emphasis of this book is on the sound formulation of the basic equations describing multiphase transport and how they can be used to design processes in selected industrially important fields. The clear underlying mathematical and physical bases of the interdisciplinary description of multiphase flow and transport are the main themes, along with advances in the kinetic theory for particle flow systems. The book may be used as an upper-level undergraduate or graduate textbook, as a reference by professionals in the design of processes that deal with a variety of multiphase systems, and by practitioners and experts in multiphase science in the area of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) at U.S. national laboratories, international universities, research laboratories and institutions, and in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and petroleum industries. Distinct from other books on multiphase flow, this volume shows clearly how the basic multiphase equations can be used in the design and scale-up of multiphase processes. The authors represent a combination of nearly two centuries of experience and innovative application of multiphase transport representing hundreds of publications and several books. This book serves to encapsulate the essence of their wisdom and insight, and:
