Abstract

The purpose of this work is to review the present status of both theoretical and numerical research of multiphase flow dynamics and to make the results of that fundamental research more readily available for students and for those working with practical problems involving multiphase flow. Flows that appear in many of the common industrial processes are intrinsically multiphase flows - e.g. flows of gas-particle suspensions, liquid-particle suspensions, and liquid-fiber suspensions, as well as bubbly flows, liquid-liquid flows, and the flow through porous medium. In the first part of this publication we give a comprehensive review of the theory of multiphase flows accounting for several alternative approaches. The second part is devoted to numerical methods for solving multiphase flow equations.
