Key Features

@introbul:Key Features
@bul:* Treats fluidization as a branch of transport phenomena
* Demonstrates how to do transient, multidimensional simulation of multiphase processes
* The first book to apply kinetic theory to flow of particulates
* Is the only book to discuss numerical stability of multiphase equations and whether or not such equations are well-posed
* Explains the origin of bubbles and the concept of critical granular flow
* Presents clearly written exercises at the end of each chapter to facilitate understanding and further study

Description

Useful as a reference for engineers in industry and as an advanced level text for graduate engineering students, Multiphase Flow and Fluidization takes the reader beyond the theoretical to demonstrate how multiphase flow equations can be used to provide applied, practical, predictive solutions to industrial fluidization problems. Written to help advance progress in the emerging science of multiphase flow, this book begins with the development of the conservation laws and moves on through kinetic theory, clarifying many physical concepts (such as particulate viscosity and solids pressure) and introducing the new dependent variable--the volume fraction of the dispersed phase. Exercises at the end of each chapterare provided for further study and lead into applications not covered in the text itself.

Readership

Industrial researchers and engineers in the chemical processing, petroleum, and biotechnology industries. Graduate students in chemical, mechanical, petroleum, and biomedical engineering taking courses such as transport phenomena, fluidization, fluid mechanics, and multiphase and particulate systems.

Quotes and reviews

@qu:"Overall, I recommend this book to people who are serious about fundamental modeling of multiphase flows. It is representative of the latest efforts in this field; namely it is the first to focus on the kinetic theory as applied to multiphase systems involving particles."
