Abstract

The singular characteristic of two-phase or of two immiscible mixtures is the presence of one or several interfaces separating the phases or components. Examples of such flow systems can be found in a large number of engineering systems as well as in a wide variety of natural phenomena. The understanding of the flow and heat transfer processes of two-phase systems has become increasingly important in nuclear, mechanical and chemical engineering, as well as in environmental and medical science.
