For separating transient two phase gas-liquid flows, a tool is developed that is based on a rotational pump impeller with axial gas removal. Theoretical and experime... Academic Article uri icon


  • A new phenomenon of turbulent thermal diffusion is discussed. This effect is related to the dynamics of small inertial particles in low-Mach-number compressible turbulent fluid flows. Turbulent thermal diffusion is caused by the correlation between temperature and velocity fluctuations of the surrounding fluid and leads to relatively strong nondiffusive mean flux of inertial particles in regions with...
