The book contains a wealth of knowledge regarding the hydrodynamics of particulate media, and progressively introduces the effect on dynamics of the particles. It is very instrustive in the sense, that first the single particle dynamics is discussed. Then the effects of shapes and sizes are detailed. Next level of complexity is built in by looking at interaction between two spherical particles moving through a fluid. Then anisotropic bodies are discussed. The effect of walls, boundaries and multi-particles comes in next. A basic understanding of Fluid Mechanics (say of the order of Transport Phenomenon by Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot) is enough to get one started on discovering the beautiful word of Low Re Hydrodynamics.
However, the text was written and revised two-three decades back, and hence is a bit dated with respect to the range of applications covered and the cited references.Read more ›
