We propose a one-fluid analytical model for a turbulently flowing dilute suspension, based on a modified Navier-Stokes equation with a k-dependent effective density of suspension rho(eff)(k) and an additional damping term proportional, variant gamma(p)(k), representing the fluid-particle friction (described by Stokes law). The statistical description of turbulence within the model is simplified by a modification of the usual closure procedure based on the Richardson-Kolmogorov picture of…

Particle-Turbulence Interaction in a Homogeneous, Isotropic Turbulent Suspension
A review is given of numerical, analytical, and experimental research regarding the two-way coupling effect between particles and fluid turbulence in a homogeneous, isotropic turbulent suspension.
Two-fluid approach for direct numerical simulation of particle-laden turbulent flows at small Stokes numbers.
A two-fluid approach is proposed for direct numerical simulation of particle-laden turbulent flows in two-way coupling where the particle Stokes number is small and there is good agreement between various fluid-phase statistics obtained by these approaches for different small Stokes numbers and mean particle concentrations.
Effect of particle inertia and gravity on the turbulence in a suspension
A theoretical model is presented for the effect of particle inertia and gravity on the turbulence in a homogeneous suspension. It is an extension of the one-fluid model developed by L’vov, Ooms, and
Two-way coupled stochastic model for dispersion of inertial particles in turbulence
Abstract Turbulent two-phase flows are characterized by the presence of multiple time and length scales. Of particular interest in flows with non-negligible interphase momentum coupling are the time
