Multi-phase flows

  • Gas – particle flow in industrial classification chambers Optimisation of design of a Gravitational Classification Chamber (GCC) for Industrial Applications using CFD
  • Mechanical erosion wear Very common in pipelines transporting crude oil with suspended sand particles due to multiple particle – wall collisions.
