 October 2, 2009, 06:14 Euler-Euler Multiphase with LES? #1 New Member   Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 11 Rep Power: 10 Hi, I am kinda confused with the Euler-Euler approach for two-phase (gas-liquid) flow using LES. In the EE-approach, the NS equations are averaged and by applying LES, I filtered the equations again (which is also some sort of averaging). Is this valid? Doesn't it mean that you are averaging an already averaged equation? I hope someone can elaborate on this. Thanks in advance.

Why you consider averaging ?

Will it be possible to consider a different modelling approach!!!

In a single phase flow its no problem. but is this really valid for a two-phase flow?
