Multiphase flow modelling using CFD review/book
Can any body put me onto a journal review or book that looks at multiphase flow modelling techniques in CFD? I've really had no luck with finding a comprehensive review (well, even any review that covered only one of the topics below). I'm after something that would cover Lagrangian-Eulerian & Eulerian-Eulerian methods (including drift-velocity, drift-flux, slip and homogenous models).
At the moment I'm looking at implementing a homogenous model (core CFD equations with a scalar transport equation of solids concentration including settling velocity as a function of the scalar), so I'd like to see the advantages/disadvantages of it compared to other methods. |

Re: Multiphase flow modelling using CFD review/boo
There isn't any specific review/book in two-phase flow but there are many perfect articles in two-phase flow. for simplicity for example many people consider drift flux model where u_{1} = u_{2}, where I've considered it as u_{r} = u_{2} - u_{1}, can you see the difference,
have a look to: Numerical simulation of compressible two-phase flow model based on the Riemann problem. ACOMEN 2002, Liege, Belgium, May 28-31, 2002. this one of the best in two-phase flow models; Stewart, H and Wendroff, B. Two-phase flow: models and methods J. of comp. phys. 56, 1984, 363-409 and many others. Trust me there are many different models as many numerical solutions for two-phase flow. I'm telling you this after more than 3 years in mathematical and numerical study of two-phase flow models, one more fact as well, there are a large number of derivations of the balance equations are available for two-phase flow applications. The fact that each researcher is primarily interested in a particular system of flow regime has led to conflicts and differences in the resulting equations. I advice you to understand the mathematical analysis of two-phase flow models, is it ill-posed, well-posed etc. this will help you in your numerics. If you need any article or help just let me know. |

Re: Multiphase flow modelling using CFD review/boo
Thanks very much for that. The Stewart paper was quite useful.
I just found a paper that was more situation specific for me (ie water clarifier design). I think it might be reasonably useful also. D. Lakehal, "On the modelling of multiphase turbulent flows for environmental and hydrodynamic applications," International Journal of Multiphase Flow, 28, 823-863, 2002. |

Re: Multiphase flow modelling using CFD review/boo
Dear sir, I would like to ask you some references for a specific case of two-phase flow, namely solid particles in a gas flow (aerosol), in incompressible to slightly compressible regime (M <0.33), and at very low pressures. Expecially books would be useful. Thank you very much for your attention,

may be this will help

Re: Multiphase flow modelling using CFD review/boo
There is one particular issue in J Comput Phys on multiphase flows. The following reviews are quite comprehensive.
Osher S and Fedkiw RP, Level set methods: an overview and some recent results, J. Comput. Phys. 169, 463-502 (2001). Tryggvason G, Bunner B, Esmaeeli A, Juric D, Al-Rawahi N, Tauber W, Han J, Nas S and Jan YJ, A front-tracking method for the computations of multiphase flow, J. Comput. Phys. 169, 708¨C759 (2001). For solid particles, things are easier (I guess). You may look at R. Glowinski, T.W. Pan, T.I. Hesla, D.D. Joseph, and J. Periaux, A fictitious domain approach to the direct numerical simulation of incompressible viscous flow past moving rigid bodies: application to particulate flow, J. Comp. Phys. 169, 363 (2001). |
