Eligibility:


In order to be eligible for a second cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme that owns the course. (If the second cycle course is owned by a first cycle programme, second cycle entry requirements apply.)
Exemption from the eligibility requirement: Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling these requirements.

Course specific prerequisites

The student should have a reasonable background in fluid mechanics to be able to follow
the course.

Aim

The purpose of the course is to get the students acquainted with phenomenology and the
underlying physics of the processes involving multiphase flows. Also, another purpose is to
provide information related to various industrial applications of such processes. In
addition, the course deals with analytic and numerical analyses, as well as experimental
techniques for investigating flows involving mixtures of phases (gas, solid and liquid).

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • be able to apply a number of relevant procedures and methods presently used for studying multiphase flow processes. More specifically, the student will be able to formulate, model and solve problems involving the simultaneous presence of multiple phases (gas. solid, liquid) in various industrial processes and flow situations.
  • evaluate theoretical models and explain results from calculations and experiments.
  • using a variety of tools and modelling approaches studied in the course,  describe the existing relevant industrial processes 
  •  take part in prediction of technological processes to be used in the future.

Content

The course starts with a detailed discussion on phenomenology of multiphase flows and continues with outlining the methodology for studying such flow processes. Methods (e.g. particle-tracking and continuum models) for investigating multiphase flows in different scales and processes are introduced and studied in detail. Throughout the course, a number of most common applications and processes will be investigated using those tools. A sound physical and mathematical background for the procedures studied will be offered. Finally, a number of most frequently used experimental techniques (both in research and industry) will be described and discussed.

Organisation

The course is given in the form of lectures and a number of home tasks. Also, an exercise in a laboratory will be carried out, in which the students will get familiar with a number of common types of multiphase flow processes.

Literature

Multiphase Flows with droplets and particles, by Clayton Crowe, Martin Sommerfeld and Yutaka Tsuji, ISBN 0-8493-9469-4 7. 

A number of additional articles given by the teacher throughout the course.

Examination

Examination is based on a written exam (with grades introduced) and on approved home and laboratory tasks.
