Small particle A particle is referred to as small, if its diameter is smaller than the Kolmogorov
as medium, if its diameter is between the Kolmogorov scale and the integral scale;
In dilute, particle-laden flows of interest, the majority of particles are small, based on this definition.
For small, heavy particles/droplets in dilute two-phase flow,
The particle trajectory & velocity can be determined at each time, provided the knowledge of the flow field at that moment
The interaction between turbulent eddies and immersed small particles is referred to as turbulent particle dispersion.
Observation: dispersive effect on particles released from the same location; Key parameters: (1) particle size, with respect to eddy size; (2) fluid and
particle properties, e.g., fluid viscosity & density and particle density; (3) flow properties, e.g., distribution of turbulent kinetic energy.

A Gaussian distributed random velocity fluctuation is used: also known as discrete random walk (DRW) model or eddy lifetime model.
In DRW model, each eddy is characterized by

A time scale, accounting for the Characteristic eddy lifetime and Crossing trajectory effect, is used as the integral time.

Over the interaction time, , the particle is assumed to interact with the fluid phase eddy with a given instantaneous velocity. When
this time is reached, a NEW value of will be applied to generate
new random velocity fluctuations ( new instantaneous velocity).

Track the statistical evolution of a cloud of particles about a mean
trajectory: the concentration of particles about a mean trajectory is
represented by a Gaussian PDF whose variance is based on the degree
of particle dispersion due to turbulent fluctuations.
The PDF used is derived from Taylors analysis:

1. Large-scale vortex structures are important controlling mechanisms for
the particle dispersion process.
2. Particle dispersion levels tend to maximize at intermediate values of
Stokes numbers, 0(1)0(10).
3. Particles of intermediate-St tend to concentrate preferentially near the
outer boundaries of large-scale vortex structures.
Turbulence properties: characterized by, such as, turbulent kinetic energy, Reynolds stresses, spectra, or two-point correlations.
Turbulence modulation: one or more of the statistical properties of the carrier phase turbulence is changed by the presence of particles.
Most frequently, refers to changes in the carrier-phase turbulent kinetic energy (either enhanced or decayed).
However, TKE changes do not fully describe the changes to the turbulence.
Attenuation of TKE as a function of mass loading ratio on the center-plane of fully developed channel flow for glass beads (150 m) and copper beads (70 m).

The exact mechanisms: not very well understood; the available
theories often can NOT predict the level or even sign of the change in
Some basic mechanisms: all them require the particles be large
enough that they can not follow the flow and there is a substantial
instantaneous relative velocity between two phases.
Through the carrier-phase mean velocity
The effects of carrier mean flow distortions on the carrier turbulence can be
predicted by single-phase turbulence models.
If the mean carrier-phase velocity field is changed by the addition of particles,
the mean strain field and the turbulence production rate will also be changed.
Unsteady particle wakes behind relatively large particles.Important when p is not small and Rep is in the vortex shedding regime.

Extra dissipation of turbulence by particles.
Fluctuating kinetic energy of the particles
Producing local flow distortions around each particle
A particle that cannot respond to fluctuations exerts a force on the fluid that opposes the relative motion. When the particles are heavy, the relative motion is produced mostly by the carrier-phase fluctuations.
The cloud of dispersed particles produces a non-uniform force field that instantaneously opposes the carrier-phase velocity fluctuations, extracting energy from the turbulence.
Preferential concentration & sweeping of particles.
Preferential concentration occurs when particles (with particle time constants comparable to eddy time scales) are swept out of vortex cores and concentrated in convergence zones.
Particles apply an angular impulse opposing the vortex rotation as they are spun out of a simple vortex.
For St1, the ratio of the angular impulse to the initial angular momentum of the vortex is 1.3 MLR / St. This would act to suppress vortices (whose time scales are close to the particle time constant).
Particles are expected to produce significant local distortion of the small-scale motions.
The fact that the particle diameter is comparable to the Kolmogorov scale (dp/) indicates that the particles experience significant velocity gradients rather than the locally uniform flow assumed in most models. This means that the particles experience forces transverse to the relative velocity.
The fact that the average particle spacing (Lbetween-p) is so large means the force applied is not continuous. This is likely to produce a significant distortion of the energy-containing eddies and could lead to a higher turbulent dissipation rate.
A common approach to modeling the effects of particles on turbulence
is to treat the particles as applying a continuous force field onto the
fluid phase where the force is the reaction force (to the particle drag).
(1) Write down the modified N-S equations, by including fluid-particle inter-phase
(2) Apply Reynolds decomposition; subtract the mean flow component; square
