This second edition attests to the impact of the subject matter in a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines. There has been tremendous growth in areas such as transport phenomena/materials science and processing. This book builds on and updates the editor's earlier work. It highlights recent advances in the motion of particles, drops and bubbles in complex fluids and represents a timely and needed addition to the literature on real (non-linear) materials. In particular, it contains state-of-the-art contributions from leading experts in areas such as particle deposition in membranes, flow of granular mixtures, food suspensions, foams, electro kinetic and thermo capillary driven flows, and two-phase flows.

"'This collection of state-of-the-art reviews is intended to update the first edition published in 1992...Most of the chapters relate chiefly to chemical engineering, with some related to other topics such as soil mechanics, fluid mechanics, and related fields...some of the topics covered are of importance to biological systems.'
