Ensemble Averaging Techniques for Disperse Flows
In a number of recent papers by the author and co-workers, a new formalism for the derivation of averaged equations for disperse multiphase flow was developed. The techniques used in those studies are reviewed here in greater detail than was possible in the original publications. Some examples of the application of the formalism to the dilute case are then shown. Considerations on the numerical implementation of the method and on the incorporation of turbulence in the general framework are also given.
