Species and Mixture Hydrodynamics

  • Constantine Pozrikidis


We have regarded a mixture as a superposition of coexisting, interacting, and possibly reacting species. We have discussed the motion of monochromatic species parcels and analyzed the mixture kinematics with reference to the species diffusion velocities defined as the differences between the individual species velocities and the mixture mass velocity. In this chapter, we turn our attention to the balance of forces and introduce species and mixture stresses that develop spontaneously in hydrostatics or as a result of the motion.
