Computational Techniques for Multiphase Flows

Combined or multiphase flows of solid/liquid or solid/gas are in most cases present in many commercial fields, and their habit is complicated and hard to foretell in lots of instances. using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has emerged as a robust software for the certainty of fluid mechanics in multiphase reactors, that are universal within the chemical, petroleum, mining, nutrition, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

Hydraulic Engineering III

Hydraulic learn is constructing past the borders of conventional civil engineering to satisfy expanding calls for in average risks, structural security evaluation and likewise environmental study. Hydraulic Engineering III comprises sixty two technical papers from the third Technical convention on Hydraulic Engineering (CHE 2014, Hong Kong, 13-14 December 2014), together with the 2014 Structural and Civil Engineering Workshop (SCEW 2014) and the 4th Workshop on surroundings and safeguard Engineering (WESE 2014).

Example text

Most common fluids deform at a rate U/d proportional to the shearing stress: τ = μ (U/h), where the coefficient μ is independent of the speed U and h is the (macroscopic) size of the flow system. Such fluids, including air and water, are called Newtonian fluids. The coefficient μ is called the dynamic viscosity, and under ordinary pressure, μ for a Newtonian fluid, varies only with temperature (at least when the density is constant). In any case, all real fluids offer some resistance to a finite rate of deformation; however, in many cases, the shearing stresses in most parts of the flow are unimportant and can be neglected in an approximate analysis.

We feel that the short discussion followed in Sects. 5 should give the reader a sufficient idea of the two main asymptotic techniques, MMAE and MSM, to understand the applications that will be presented in the coming chapters. 1 Method of Strained Coordinates In the MSC, both the dependent and the independent variables are expanded in terms of ε, so that the coefficients of the two series are functions of new, unknown, independent variables. The assumed series expansions are substituted in the governing equations, and the unknown coefficients are found by ensuring that higher approximations are no more singular than the first.

3 Equations of State: Perfect Gas and Expansible Liquid Now it is important to note that from the conservation of mass, of linear momentum, and of energy in the classical mechanics of continua, we derive a set of partial differential equations (see Sect. 2) for the seven unknowns: pressure p, density ρ, internal (specific) energy E, temperature T , and the velocity components ui (i = 1, 2, 3). The viscosity coefficients λ and μ and the thermal conductivity k are assumed to be known a priori from experimental data; they may be constants or more generally specified functions of T (and eventually of ρ).
