A numerical simulation of the passive heat transfer in a particle-laden turbulent flow

Part of the ERCOFTAC Series book series (ERCO, volume 15)


Non-isothermal turbulent flows laden with large number of particles or droplets occur in numerous situations e.g., combustion, catalytic cracking, droplet growth in clouds, etc. Due to interactions between continuous and dispersed phase the distribution of the particles and its statistical properties can be highly non-uniform (Eaton and Fessler, 1994). This non-uniformity can have important consequences on the chemical processes affecting the efficiency of the combustion or chemical reactions. Experiments and DNS demonstrates that shear flow, mean gradient in the fluid and velocity of the particles have complex effect on the particle fluctuations.
