Multiphase flow technology, especially in the area of gas-droplet and gas-particle flows, is increasingly important in the energy and manufacturing industries. Pollution control, pneumatic transport, food processing, combustion, and development of new materials as well as many other engineering applications will benefit from the fundamental engineering design applications and research in this field. Written for graduate students and professionals, Multiphase Flows with Droplets and Particles provides a clear, pedagogical approach to the fundamentals of gas-particle and gas-droplet flows.
