In this book, a new approach to the theory and practice of two-phase systems based on a global invariant entropy, and other invariants is formulated and experimentally confirmed.

  • Offers a novel approach to the study of the two-phase flows systems based on statistical mechanics and probability theory
  • Provides the tools for computing and modelling two-phase systems, predicts mass transfer and enables system optimization
  • Provides a plethora of examples in among others, separation processes, dust production, pneumatic transport, and boiling bed
The author, Dr. Eugene Barsky, has been engaged in this subject for 18 years, since 1993. His M.Sc. thesis completed in 1998 was devoted to the development of models of cascade separation of solid materials in flows. His PhD thesis completed in 2001 was devoted to the development of entropy criterion of separation processes optimizatio...
