  title={A Statistical Analysis Towards Modelling the Fluctuating Torque on Particles in Particle-laden Turbulent Shear Flow},
  author={Swagnik Ghosh and Partha Sarathi Goswami},
Dynamics of the particle phase in a particle laden turbulent flow is highly influenced by the fluctuating velocity and vorticity field of the fluid phase. The present work mainly focuses on exploring the possibility of applying a Langevin type of random torque model to predict the rotational dynamics of the particle phase. Towards this objective, direct numerical simulations (DNS) have been carried out for particle laden turbulent shear flow with Reynolds number, Reδ = 750 in presence of sub… 


Particle dynamics in a turbulent particle–gas suspension at high Stokes number. Part 1. Velocity and acceleration distributions
The effect of fluid velocity fluctuations on the dynamics of the particles in a turbulent gas–solid suspension is analysed in the low-Reynolds-number and high Stokes number limits, where the particle
Particle dynamics in a turbulent particle–gas suspension at high Stokes number. Part 2. The fluctuating-force model
A fluctuating-force model is developed for representing the effect of the turbulent fluid velocity fluctuations on the particle phase in a turbulent gas–solid suspension in the limit of high Stokes
On the two-way interaction between homogeneous turbulence and dispersed solid particles. I: Turbulence modification
The modification of decaying homogeneous turbulence due to its interaction with dispersed small solid particles (d/η<1), at a volumetric loading ratio φv≤5×10−4, is studied using direct numerical
The role of particle collisions in pneumatic transport
We analyse the dilute, steady, fully developed flow of relatively massive particles in a turbulent gas in the context of a vertical pipe. The idea is that the exchange of momentum in collisions
Torque-coupling and particle–turbulence interactions
Abstract A novel scheme for strong coupling between inertial Lagrangian point particles and a continuous Eulerian fluid phase has been developed. A full mechanical coupling can only be achieved if
Rotational diffusion of particles in turbulence
Through laboratory measurements, we compare the rotation of spherical and ellipsoidal particles in homogeneous, isotropic turbulence. We find that the particles' angular velocity statistics are well

It is demonstrated that, when sufficient caustics are present and the particle response time is significantly smaller than the integral time scales of the flow, the distribution exhibits the same universal power-law form dictated by the correlation dimension as predicted by the model of Gustavsson and Mehlig.

Relative velocities of inertial particles in turbulent aerosols
We compute the joint distribution of relative velocities and separations of identical inertial particles suspended in randomly mixing and turbulent flows. Our results are obtained by matching
Distribution of relative velocities in turbulent aerosols.
This work computes the distribution of relative velocities for a one-dimensional model of heavy particles suspended in a turbulent flow, quantifying the caustic contribution to the moments of relativeVelocities using the phase-space correlation dimension.
