Useful as a reference for engineers in industry and as an advanced level text for graduate engineering students, Multiphase Flow and Fluidization takes the reader beyond the theoretical to demonstrate how multiphase flow equations can be used to provide applied, practical, predictive solutions to industrial fluidization problems. Written to help advance progress in the emerging science of multiphase flow, this book begins with the development of the conservation laws and moves on through kinetic theory, clarifying many physical concepts (such as particulate viscosity and solids pressure) and introducing the new dependent variable-the volume fraction of the dispersed phase. Exercises at the end of each chapterare provided for further study and lead into applications not covered in the text itself.

"Overall, I recommend this book to people who are serious about fundamental modeling of multiphase flows. It is representative of the latest efforts in this field; namely it is the first to focus on the kinetic theory as applied to multiphase systems involving particles." --Dr. J.L. Sinclair, Carnegie Mellon University, POWDER TECHNOLOGY
