Abstract

RE: Viscous Flow in Multiparticle Systems

This abstract reviews a series of theoretical studies which has resulted in achieving a better understanding of such phenomena as resistance to flow of fluids through beds, sedimentation of small particles and viscosity of suspensions. There are many systems both in nature and technology involving these types of motion. Examples of commercial applications include the separation of particles by centrifuging and sedimentation, filtration, flow of gases through vessels containing packed solids (kilns, gas producers and blast furnaces), and motion of particles and gases in catalyst contracting vessels.
