  • Genuinely multidisciplinary treatment of an active and actual topic

  • Combines directly theoretical approaches with its practical applications

  • Fills a gap in the existing literature

  • The book deals with subject of particles in industrial, environmental and biomedical flows


Part of the Advances in Mathematical Fluid Mechanics book series (AMFM)

About this book


This book aims to face particles in flows from many different, but essentially interconnected sides and points of view. Thus the selection of authors and topics represented in the chapters, ranges from deep mathematical analysis of the associated models, through the techniques of their numerical solution, towards real applications and physical implications.

The scope and structure of the book as well as the selection of authors was motivated by the very successful summer course and workshop "Particles in Flows'' that was held in Prague in the August of 2014. This meeting revealed the need for a book dealing with this specific and challenging multidisciplinary subject, i.e. particles in industrial, environmental and biomedical flows and the combination of fluid mechanics, solid body mechanics with various aspects of specific applications.
