Part of the Mechanics of fluids and transport processes book series (MFTP, volume 1)


The behavior of systems involving the motion of aggregates of small particles relative to fluids in which they are immersed covers a wide range of phenomena of interest to both scientists and engineers. Broadly speaking we may assign these processes to several classes. Particles may move together in bulk through a fluid, as in sedimentation. In turn, the particles may remain more or less stationary as in a packed bed. The relative particle-fluid motions may be more complex, as in fluidized systems. Finally, the phenomenon of suspension viscosity or resistance to shear is encountered when solid particles move relative to each other owing to shearing motion of the suspending fluid, as contrasted with situations where the fluid moves relative to the entire particle system. Many processes involving these types of motion are found in nature and technology. It is the basic purpose of this book to develop an understanding of such behavior of multiparticle systems, starting with the dynamics of single particles.
