Modelling Approaches and Computational Methods for Particle-laden Turbulent Flows introduces the principal phenomena observed in applications where turbulence in particle-laden flow is encountered while also analyzing the main methods for analyzing numerically. The book takes a practical approach, providing advice on how to select and apply the correct model or tool by drawing on the latest research.  Sections provide scales of particle-laden turbulence and the principal analytical frameworks and computational approaches used to simulate particles in turbulent flow. Each chapter opens with a section on fundamental concepts and theory before describing the applications of the modelling approach or numerical method. Featuring explanations of key concepts, definitions, and fundamental physics and equations, as well as recent research advances and detailed simulation methods, this book is the ideal starting point for students new to this subject, as well as an essential reference for experienced researchers.
