This book has been written for graduate students, scientists and engineers who need in-depth theoretical foundations to solve two-phase problems in various technological systems. Based on extensive research experiences focused on the fundamental physics of two-phase flow, the authors present the detailed theoretical foundation of multi-phase flow thermo-fluid dynamics as they apply to a variety of scenarios, including nuclear reactor transient and accident analysis, energy systems, power generation systems and even space propulsion.

From the reviews:
"This version contains a lot of new material, including a model for interfacial transport, and updated versions of the models for interfacial force and heat transfer. Because of this, it will become a staple in multiphase flow problems ... at the engineering level." (Donald A. Drew, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 f)
