Table of Contents

  1. Introduction
    2. The Two Fluid Model, Eulerian-Eulerian
    3. Unresolved Coupling Model, Lagrangian-Eulerian
    4. Resolved Coupling Model, Lagrangian-Eulerian
    5. Particles Modelling, Lagrangian‐Lagrangian
    6. Summation, Comparisons, and Future Research Directions


Multiphysics Modelling of Fluid-Particulate Systems provides an explanation on how to model fluid-particulate systems using Eulerian and Lagrangian methods. The computational cost and relative merits of the different methods are compared, with recommendations on where and how to apply them provided. The science underlying the fluid‐particulate phenomena involves computational fluid dynamics (for liquids and gases), computational particle dynamics (solids), and mass and heat transfer. In order to simulate these systems, it is essential to model the interactions between phases and the fluids and particles themselves. This book details instructions for several numerical methods of dealing with this complex problem.

This book is essential reading for researchers from all backgrounds interested in multiphase flows or fluid-solid modeling, as well as engineers working on related problems in chemical engineering, food science, process engineering, geophysics or metallurgical processing.

Key Features

  • Provides detailed coverage of Two-Fluid Methods, CFD-Direct Element Methods, and a comparison of their various attributes
  • Gives an excellent summary of a range of simulation techniques and provides numerical examples
  • Starts with a broad introduction to fluid-particulate systems to help readers from a range of disciplines grasp fundamental principles


Researchers and PhD students with mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, and applied mathematics backgrounds with an interest in fluid-particulate systems. Engineers in process, pharmaceutical, mining, or energy industries working with multiphase flow problems
