Multiphase Flow Concepts

  • Roger Prud’homme
Part of the Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 94)


Multiphase flows can be gas flows with solid and/or liquid particles, or liquid flows with vapor bubbles, solid and/or liquid particles [138]. Exchanges between phases, chemical reactions, and particle disintegration and agglomeration can occur within them. The example of a gas-droplet multiphase flow1 illustrates their complexity. In this chapter, we will attempt to obtain a complete set of equations, if possible, with closure relations that allow the analytical or numerical solution of such a flow.
