With the great increase in computational resources, Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of industrial configurations is now an efficient and tractable tool. Numerous applications involve a liquid or solid disperse phase carried by a gaseous flow field (eg, fuel injection in automotive or aeronautical engines, fluidized beds, and alumina particles in rocket boosters). To simulate this kind of flow, one may resort to a Number Density Function (NDF), which satisfies a kinetic equation.
