Momentum and Heat Transfer in Turbulent Gas-Solid Flows

1-57600-022-3 (Print)

Momentum and Heat Transfer in Turbulent Gas-Solid Flows


This book is concerned with simultaneous transfer of momentum, heat and particulate mass in turbulent gas flows containing a relatively small (by volume) fraction of solid particles. The overwhelming majority of applications of particle-laden gas systems are turbulent, and this book therefore deals exclusively with turbulent transport phenomena.
