Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a statistical model based on a kinetic PDF equation for predicting transport of arbitrary-density particles in two-phase turbulent shear flow. The model developed is used to simulate the motion of particles and bubbles in both homogeneous sheared and pipe flows.
