Particle technology two phase flow rheology and powders

By Loughborough University engCETL


The eighth lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Two phase flow, rheology and powders covers flow of dispersions of powders in liquids and gases, as well as the storage of powders and why they sometimes do not flow. Equations to predict the pressure drop in pumped systems are provided, for both streamline and turbulent flows. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre Open Engineering Resources Pilot project. The project was funded by HEFCE and the JISC/HE Academy UKOER programme.

Topics: particle technology, rheograms, pneumatic conveying, hydraulic conveying, powder flow, apparent viscosity, dodge and metzner, wilkinson equation, generalised reynolds number, dilute phase flow, saltation velocity, bulk density, mass flow, engscoer, ukoer, engcetl, loughborough university, loughboroughunioer, richard holdich, engineering, Engineering, H000
