Introduction to Multiphase Flows
• Multiphase Flow Overview
• Basic definitions and concepts
• Phenomenon to be modeled
• Modeling Approaches

Phase: Thermodynamics defines phase as a chemically and physically uniform quantity of matter that can be separated mechanically from a non homogeneous mixture. It may consist of a single substance or a
mixture of substance.

Multiphase Flow is flow involving more than one phase, mixed macroscopically
• Examples: Water droplets in air , Air bubbles in oil, Sand particles in water
