The pseudoturbulent diffusion of particles in homogeneous suspensions

  • 25 Accesses


The effective diffusion coefficients for suspended particles caused by their pseudoturbulent pulsations, are treated. Derivatives of the dynamic variables which determine the average motion of the locally homogeneous suspension are neglected.
