About this title

Synopsis:

Understanding the behaviour of particles suspended in a fluid has many important applications across a range of fields, including engineering and geophysics. Comprising two main parts, this book begins with the well-developed theory of particles in viscous fluids, i.e. microhydrodynamics, particularly for single- and pair-body dynamics. Part II considers many-body dynamics, covering shear flows and sedimentation, bulk flow properties and collective phenomena. An interlude between the two parts provides the basic statistical techniques needed to employ the results of the first (microscopic) in the second (macroscopic). The authors introduce theoretical, mathematical concepts through concrete examples, making the material accessible to non-mathematicians. They also include some of the many open questions in the field to encourage further study. Consequently, this is an ideal introduction for students and researchers from other disciplines who are approaching suspension dynamics for the first time.

Review:

"Presentations of suspension dynamics very easily become mired in technicalities, and to the authors' credit they never permit this to happen. There are some fairly technical passages, but these are lucidly explained and physical insight is rarely far away... the high quality of Sylvie Pic's illustrations... These have a distinctive pencil-drawing style which readily communicates the three-dimensional nature of particles and suspensions and gives the book a particular visual appeal. They are thus perhaps the most conspicuous example of the attention to detail and clarity that makes this such an attractive introduction to a rich and fascinating topic."
