The only work available to treat the theory of turbulent flow with suspended particles, this book also includes a section on simulation methods, comparing the model results obtained with the PDF method to those obtained with other techniques, such as DNS, LES and RANS.
Written by experienced scientists with background in oil and gas processing, this book is applicable to a wide range of industries -- from the petrol industry and industrial chemistry to food and water processing.
About the Author
Emmanuil G. Sinaiski completed the Lomonossow-State University, Moscow, Russia, where he obtained his PhD in physics and mathematics. He received his Dr Eng. Sci. degree in petroleum engineering from Gubkin-State University of Oil&Gas, Moscow, Russia where he was later appointed to a full professorship. Professor Sinaiski has published numerous books and scientific articles, among them 'Separation of Multiphase, Multicomponent Systems' published in 2007 and `Statistical Microhydrodynamics? published in 2008 by Wiley-VCH. His fields of interest are applied mathematics, fluid mechanics, physicochemical hydrodynamics, chemical and petroleum engineering.
Leonid I. Zaichik studied thermophysics at the Moscow Power Engineering Institute and received his PhD in 1976. Thereafter he worked at the Krzhihanovsky Power Engineering Institute and the Institute for High Temperature of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia. Since 2006 he is head of the Laboratory of Theoretical Hydrodynamics at the Nuclear Safety Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and professor at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. His scientific interests are mathematical modelling, turbulence, multiphase flows, aerosol mechanics, hydrodynamic stability, and combustion. He has written five books and over 300 papers.
Vladimir M. Alipchenkov studied nuclear physics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and received his PhD in 1983.
