Mechanics of Liquid Mixtures Chapter uri icon


  • A brief introduction is provided for modeling the response of mixtures under the assumption that the constituents can be modeled as a continuum and that the constituents co-occupy the region of the mixture in a homogenized sense. The constituents of the mixture can undergo chemical reactions and there can be interconversion between the constituents. Balance laws are provided for the constituents of the mixture that allow for the chemical reactions as well as the numerous other interaction mechanisms between the constituents. After developing the general framework, the theory will be used to develop a model for the flow of a mixture of fluids. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media LLC.
