Chapter 3: Fluid Dynamics

This handbook is the fruit of work performed by the IIR Working Party on Ice Slurries and contains everything a reader could possibly want to know about ice slurries. Edited by Michael Kauffeld, Masahiro Kawaji and Peter W. Egolf, around 50 international experts contributed to this unique book summarizing current knowledge in this field. With topics ranging from past use, modern applications, perspectives, other phase-change slurries, flow and pressure drop, current and future production methods, pumping, storage and insulation, modelling, melting methods, food processing, comfort cooling and an insight into future applications, this is a truly comprehensive handbook. Main topics: - Thermophysical properties - Fluid dynamics - Thermodynamics and heat transfer - Ice slurry production - Transport - Storing/melting and mixing - Melting ice slurries in heat exchangers - Direct contact chilling and freezing of foods in ice slurries - The control of ice slurry systems - Optimization of ice slurry systems - Present and future applications
