Outline of lecture

This course deals with various aspects of flow and heat transfer phenomena in multiphase systems, mostly focused on the gas-liquid flow. Basic flow patterns and their background physics will be studied. Also, the conservation equations, analytical models and the experimental results are going to be introduced. As well as the adiabatic cases, the fundamentals on the boiling and the condensation phenomena will be discussed. Besides, recent progress in the multiphase flow research will be briefly introduced.

Purpose of lecture

To understand the basics of multi-phase flows
