Abstract
This paper presents a summary of some recent work on the systematic closure of disperseflow averagedequations models on the basis of direct numerical simulations. Since the average pressure is found by solving the equations rather than prescribed as a closure relation, it is important first to identify the pressure part of the average stress. This objective is achieved by examining the transformation properties of the average stress under the gauge transformation
pc + pc +ψ, where PC is the continuousphase pressure and ~ the potential of the body forces. After this step, the stress is expressed in terms of computable quantities. A strategy to derive closure relations is then described. As an example, it is shown how the effective viscosity for anonuniform suspension can be obtained. This quantityu is found to be robust in the sense that it takes on the same values for the three specific flows considered. It is also shown that the theological behavior of spatially nonuniform suspensions is described by a nonNewtonian constitutive equation.
