Air Bubble Entrainment in Free-Surface Turbulent Shear Flows
This book develops an analysis of the air entrainment processes in free-surface flows. These flows are investigated as homogeneous mixtures with variable density. Several types of air-water free-surface flows are studied: plunging jet flows, open channel flows, and turbulent water jets discharging into air. Experimental observations reported by the author confirm the concept that the air-water mixture behaves as a homogeneous compressible fluid in each case. This book will be of great interest to professionals working in many fields of engineering: chemical, civil, environmental, mechanical, mining, metallurgy, and nuclear.
This is a multidisciplinary book which addresses a wide range of postgraduates, researchers, and professionals working in Chemical, Civil, Environmental, Mechanical, Mining, Metallurgy, and Nuclear Engineering.
