References on twophase flows
I'm starting a ptoject on twophase flows. The object of the project will be the development of a two phase flow solver based on an eulerian statistically averaged approach with a FEM discretization (more precicely an SUPGtype discretization). We will start from 1D implementation and then 2D. I would like to have some good references about the theory of twophase flows and on CFD problems related to these flows.
Thanks in advance, Mario 
Re: References on twophase flows
Hi Mario,
I am not quite sure what kind of twophase flow you are looking into, I am working on a gasdust flow where the dust is dragged by the flow. There are mainly two regimes and some three subregimes involving different approximations, ranging from tiny dust particles (their size is smaller than the mean free path in the gas) to macroscopic objects (assuming spherical particles). In this case the dust is much denser than the gas, but on the overall the mass of the dust in the gas is negligible, so there are no pressure forces on the dust, and the dust does not affect the gas. I have also some references on more general cases. Is this of interest to you? Cheers, Patrick 
Re: References on twophase flows
Thanks Gordon for your reply. You're right, I've been too generic talking simply of twophase flows. The 2phase flows I'm interested in are such kind of bubble flows originated from nucleate boiling in nuclear reactors or from the mixing of an incompressible phase in a gas (internal combustion engines), so flows with solid particles are not of my interest (at the moment). Thanks anyway.

Re: References on twophase flows
There are journals devoted to multiphase flows. "International Journal of Multiphase Flow" publishes research articles. "Multiphase Science and Technology" publishes review articles. If you are not familiar with twophase flows the second is more appropriate to begin with.

OK, thanks Andrzej for the useful informations. Do you know also titles of books where I can find a complete treatment of the theory (equations, examples an so on)?

can anyone suggest artical for liquid dropets in high temperature air?

Re: References on twophase flows
"Convective Boiling and Condensation." J. G. Collier and J. R. Thome. 3rd ed. Clarendon Press. Oxford. 1994.
This book is not only about phase change, as the title may suggest. It also includes twophase flow models, flow regimes, correlations, etc.
