Multiphase Flows with Droplets and Particles, Second Editionby Clayton T. Crowe
Synopses & Reviews
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:
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.
Book News Annotation:
The team of four mechanical engineers who wrote the 1998 first edition of the textbook update it to incorporate the substantial changes in the science and technology of dispersed phase flows since then. Of most note is a new chapter on the effect of the dispersed phase particles on the turbulence of the carrier phase. Among other changes are new information on particle drag and heat transfer, a reassessment of the volume-averaged conservation equation in light of the general application of the two-fluid concept, and current techniques for modeling dilute and dense flows. Exercises have been expanded, and a solution manual is available. The FORTRAN computer program has been dropped. The material is suitable for a first-year graduate course, and can serve as a reference for engineers and scientists. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Since the publication of the first edition, there have been significant advances in science and engineering applications of multiphase flows. This second edition reviews these advances while maintaining the same pedagogical approach. The book features a new chapter on the latest developments in carrier-phase turbulence, as well as an extended chapter on numerical modeling that includes new concepts in dense phase flow models. In a chapter on droplet-particle cloud equations, the text now covers the kinetic theory approach, which is commonly used for dense phase flows and incorporated in commercial codes. The exercises have been expanded, and a solution manual is now available.
