Recently, major progress has been made in the development of equations to describe the motion of fluid-particle mixtures and their application to a limited range of problems. However, results are only as good as their underlying equations, so it is essential to have a clear understanding of the fundamental physics. In The Dynamics of Fluidized Particles, Jackson formulates these equations carefully and fully describes the important existing applications that test their ability to predict salient phenomena.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is the latest in the series entitled Cambridge Monographs on Mechanics, and it is certainly a worthwhile contribution to interpreting the dynamics of fluidized particles...the book provides useful insight...impressively clear and supplemented with many lucid figures." Applied Mechanics Reviews

"This fascinating topic, which is well known to engineers, but rarely a part of the physics curriculum, is expertly laid out by Roy Jackson in The Dynamics of Fluidized Particles. He provides a definitive guide to the labyrinth of theoretical descriptions in the large literature on this subject, while maintaining an excellent balance between theory, experiment, and application...such detail, coupled with Jackson's candor and balanced approach to the theory, experiments, and applications, make this volume a great addition to the researcher's bookshelf. In the vast and noisy literature of fluidized beds, Jackson voice is a welcome fliter...Its about time." Am. J. Phys., Vol 69 No. 10 Oct 01
